Happy ADA 25th Anniversary!!

Happy #ADA25 Anniversary!! The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. In addition, unlike the Civil Rights Act, the ADA also requires covered employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities, and imposes accessibility. 

@abcfamily president and@switchedatbirthabcf masterminds not only follow the law but encourage others to do so!! A very well recognized member of the community, @seanberdy, despite of his "disability"(feeling horrible to use this word as I don't think he has any), proved, many times, to be able and more than qualified to do whatever he wants to do, and has been recognized by government and its representative for his work!! .

And so did many other "disabled" people: #MarleeMatlin,#DerrickColeman, #DanielDurant,#StephanieNogueras, #RyanLane to name a few.. Even American President Roosevelt!!

Learning about "Life as a CODA" with Abby Walla


Abby Walla

Abby is an actor/writer/producer from Minneapolis, MN. Recent television credits include a recurring role on ABC Family's Switched at Birth and ABC'sThe Middle. She has co-written a sitcom pilot, Detoured, which is currently being shopped around. She is also in various stages of writing a few web series and short films and she is a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adults)

CODAs are hearing Children Of Deaf Adults. Read more about the definition of CODAs and KODAs here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Child_of_deaf_adult

What can you tell us about your life as a CODA? What is most interesting thing on a daily basis?
Let’s see where to begin! My dad is deaf as are some of his siblings and my mom is a Sign Language interpreter, so ASL is my first language and the language that we use at home. Since this is the way I was raised and what is “normal” to me, I don’t necessarily notice differences in my daily life. It’s what I’m used to. I live away from home now (my parents are in Minnesota) and one thing that’s been great is that we can use apps like FaceTime and Glide to communicate now. So I suppose I get funny looks when I’m in public just signing to my phone. People have no idea what’s happening!

We've heard stories that CODAs treat their parents with no respect, since they have the “hearing super powers” that their parents don't. Is it true? What can you say about it? Why would they grow up thinking or behaving this way?

I can only speak for my own experience and that has never been the case for me. My dad is a highly educated teacher and has been an activist & leader in the Deaf community for over 30 years. He has traveled the world, was a professional swimmer, is funny, smart, and a wonderful father. I have tremendous respect for him! My dad is also the one that introduced me to theatre. He’s an avid theatre-goer and when I was only 2 years old, he started taking me with him to plays in Minneapolis. We would sit in the front row and interpreters would interpret the performance into ASL for him. It is one of my favorite memories from growing up. Sitting in the front row, I would be totally immersed in the plays and feel like I was the only one there! This was a major contributing factor to me becoming an actor.

Was there any occasion of your life that you felt embarrassed for being able to hear? Or for your parents for being deaf? Can you tell us what happen?
I don’t think I’ve ever felt embarrassed for being able to hear, but I’m sure there have been brief moments that I’ve wished my dad was hearing. Not because I needed him to be for me and not because he is lacking anything in his life (read my answer above about how amazing he is), but just because I didn’t want him to miss out on anything. As I mentioned, he loves theatre and musicals... He appreciates them in a visual way and they are interpreted into ASL, but I definitely wish he could experience them to the fullest since he gets so much joy out of theatre. Again, these are just brief moments because I love my dad just the way he is! :)

When you were old enough to understand the difference between you and your parents (Deaf and hearing) how did that change your perspective?

I think it was pretty early on in my childhood that I would see people treat my dad differently and that would really upset me. One story is that when I was four years old, my dad and I were in a car accident. It wasn’t our fault and we ended up being okay, but pretty banged up and scared. When the ambulances and police came to the scene, they didn’t bother trying to communicate with my dad, but starting interviewing me about what happened instead. They turned to a four year old to tell them what happened! My dad eventually had to put me behind him and tell them to talk to him. This was just one instance where people turned to me instead of my dad, which was really disrespectful.

For a funnier perspective on it, take a look at this:

Were you ever discriminated among your parents friends or family for being hearing? Even if not, does it happens with kodas in general?

That hasn’t been my experience. As I mentioned, I’ve been fluent in ASL since I was tiny, so in a group setting of Deaf people, I’m signing and fully involved. I think there are potentially different feelings towards CODAs that do not sign, but signing well was something that my parents really emphasized to us from the beginning. .

Here are some questions from fans:

Are both of your parents Deaf?

Nope, my dad is Deaf and my mom is a Sign Language interpreter.

Angela Demchuk: Do you prefer ASL over English or other way around? #DeafiesRock
I’m big on comedy & storytelling and I LOVE telling stories and joking around with my family in ASL. Since it’s a visual language, it really lends itself to playing with signs for humor and adding a little something extra to stories. I’m able to express things in a way that doesn’t quite come across in English. However, I also love sarcasm and some banter that comes along with English.

One of my favorite acting experiences was working with Deaf West Theatre in a children’s play called “Stories by Shel” directed by CJ Jones. We adapted Shel Silverstein poems into ASL and I had a blast working on it because the ASL added such an amazing (and hilarious) layer to the poems.

Sami Orlando: how much free time did you ever have to sacrifice in order to give your parents a voice or to interpret for them?

This is a little bit of a tricky question! My dad is a great communicator and finds ways to gesture or write on paper with hearing people all of the time. He’s also open to me interpreting for him, but he’s fine and totally independent without me. He doesn’t rely on me for communication. One of my favorite memories is when my family traveled to Italy, my dad did a better job of communicating with Italians than anyone else in our family because they gesture so much! To be clear, gesturing is not ASL, but he’s able to use gestures to figure out ways to communicate beyond English/Italian.

Sami Orlando: how has being a CODA turned you into a better person? Did it feel weird for you when your parents were deaf?

I think I grew up with a great sense that everybody is different & unique and that it’s okay, even awesome. My family was different than my friends’ families for various reasons, using ASL to communicate was one of the main ones. Since I was already “different”, I didn’t shy away from being independent and following my own path. I think it gave me a sense of confidence and pride in being my own person that has served me well in my life thus far. I don’t feel the need to assimilate or fit in and greatly appreciate uniqueness in people. This is another reason that I related to my character, Hilary, on Switched at Birth because she’s an individual who is not going to conform just to fit into her school’s archaic rules.

Was it hard for you to learn sign language to communicate with them?

I learned as a baby, so I just absorbed it, it wasn’t something I actively had to do.

Sami Orlando: Any flak from deaf community for playing a Deaf character or is it ok since you are a CODA? 

Thank you for asking! My character Hilary on Switched at Birth is actually a CODA (Child of Deaf Adult), not Deaf. I used both ASL and voiced English in my episodes on the show, I definitely wasn’t playing a Deaf character, just a signing one.

Using the example of your character on SAB, Hillary interpreted for Natalie during the prom scene, in your life, do you encounter yourself doing the same for your Deaf friends? If so, are they ok with that? 

Great question! It depends on the person, there’s not one answer that applies to everyone. For example, my dad will ask me to interpret for him from time to time, but my Aunt (who is also Deaf) never wants me to interpret for her. Same family, different opinions! :) When I’m with Deaf people, I don’t assume that they need me to interpret for them and only do so when asked. Especially since everyone has a smartphone now, there are ample ways for Deaf people to communicate with hearing people, even strangers who don’t know Sign Language. I just remember that they get along fine in their daily lives when I’m not there, so I don’t need to jump in unless I’m asked.

Talking about working with Deaf actors, can you describe a bit of the difference on working with Deaf actors and hearing actors (or Deaf production team or hearing one), if there is any difference for you? 
For me, it was an extra bonus to have deaf people on set, it felt like I was home! I had a blast working with the deaf actors on the show and they’re the ones that I hang out with the most outside of working on SAB. I’ve worked on mixed hearing/deaf sets before on other projects and I think everyone just needs to make sure that communication is at its best and everyone is being included. If that’s taken care of, then I think it adds a richness to the set because you have more diversity. 

Can we expect to see you on SAB again?

I hope so! It depends on what stories the writers come up with, but I love playing Hilary and working with the amazing cast, so I hope to be back again soon.

Since we are part of the Sean Berdy fan-page do you mind telling us how it is working with him? If you knew him from before SAB, did you work with him before on another project? What do you think of his character, Emmett?

Absolutely! I had not worked with Sean before the show, but spent time with him when we were on set. We have some mutual family friends, so we spent most of the time sharing stories about them and joking around.

As with all of us actors, we have to say the words that the writers write! I know there are passionate fans, that’s what’s so great about the show, but don’t blame Sean for Emmett’s decisions in life! :) On the bright side, Emmett will now have plenty of time to focus on his film career and become a superstar deaf director. I’m sure the writers thought carefully about the decision and knew it would break some hearts, but I’m guessing they have a plan. You’ll just have to keep watching to find out what it is!

Moving away from the CODA/Deaf subject only, do you have any future project in your pipeline? Can you share with us?

I’m always working on things! I have a couple web series premiering soon, and am auditioning for Film, TV, and Commercials regularly so I hope to have another show to share with you soon! I’m also a writer and have a couple projects that I’m writing and plan to produce & star in this year.

Do you have any final message for our readers? 
Thank you for watching SAB and for your great questions about my CODA life! Working on SAB was an incredible experience for me to combine my acting with ASL and also tell a wonderful story about a young person standing up for their beliefs. I loved that the writers of Switched at Birth continue to address important topics that we may face in our daily lives, so I was honored to be part of this storyline. There were a lot of other elements covered in the story (like LGBT teens), but that’s a topic that deserves its own interview!

1. What do you like most on your role in SAB?
I truly enjoy my role playing the mean girl Natalie! I also love being free to communicate in my native language (ASL) with other Deaf Actors and have hearing people use Interpreters to communicate with us. It is a wonderful opportunity to blend.

2. What was the biggest challenge you had working at SAB? (either character or personal challenge)
The biggest challenge at times is having to slow down my signing speed. I have always signed fast!

3. What was the first sign you learned?
Haha, I do not remember it, sorry!

4. What was the first sign you learned?
"I love you" and "Angel".

5. What are your plans for the future?
I plan to continue acting and inspiring Deaf and Hearing people around the world! I would love to travel the world to raise deaf awareness and donate to deaf schools in need.

Bonus: As a Bay & Emmett Fan page, would you like to say anything for our followers, Bemmett shippers and SAB fans in general?
I would like to say thank you for supporting us! It really does mean a lot to us. Thank you! Follow me @modelstella

Interview with Ryan Lane (Actor)

Ryan Lane

Website: http://ryanlaneonline.com/wp/
IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2647455/mediaindex?ref_=nm_phs_md_sm

1. What do you like most on your role in SAB?
Playing Travis has taught me to be more independent, to never give up. He has been through a lot in his life, and I have gone through similar situations. Seeing Travis push on without family and when things got bad, has given me a better outlook on life in general, and I think has made me a stronger person. The writers have really done a nice job with Travis's character.

2. What was the biggest challenge you had working at SAB? (either character or personal challenge)
There are a lot of challenges. For example, the scripts are written in English and the deaf character's lines need to be translated into ASL. Also, we have to be aware of the camera angles and remember to sign so that the camera catches our hands. ASL is such an emotive language, we also have to be really aware of our facial expressions and body language. So putting all those things together on top of memorizing lines is really challenging, but so rewarding seeing it on the screen!

3. What was the first sign you learned?
That's a good question. I really don't remember, but I think it might have been a color.

4. What is your favorite sign?
I love you - for obvious reasons, and because it seems to be a sign a lot of people know.

5. What are your plans for the future?
Other than hopefully continuing to act, I would like to do something to help the hearing understand more about the deaf... bridge the communication gap. I'm just not sure exactly how I'm going to do that yet. Its a work in progress, but with shows like Switched at Birth maybe it's not so far off. And of course, get married, have a family and live happily ever after .

Bonus: As a Bay & Emmett Fan page, would you like to say anything for our followers, Bemmett shippers and SAB fans in general?
Our fans are the reason we exist. Without them, we are nothing. I don't think you know how much you and your support means to all of us on the show. We REALLY appreciate it! Keep up the good work! Love you guys!

1. What do you like most on your role in SAB? 
I love being Matthew because he is PROUD of being Deaf and so am I! Working at SAB is like being in heaven because I love acting and love working with the awesome people there.

2. What was the biggest challenge you had working at SAB? (either character or personal challenge) 
The biggest challenge is when I can't see the interpreter to know what the director wants me to do. This happens sometimes when the crew is in the way. So I will have to ask people to move so I can see the interpreter - which can be awkward to do.

3. What was the first sign you learned? 
I don't really remember the first sign I learned, but it was probably "more" for more food!

4. What was the first sign you learned? 
That is a good question, I guess I don't really have a favorite sign, but I love to play with language and put my own spin on signs when I'm telling stories or am on stage.

5. What are your plans for the future? 
I plan to keep working on acting and getting involved in as many shows and productions as possible! I also really want to find a way to visit schools for the Deaf all over the country to talk with Deaf students and encourage them to follow their dreams and passions.

Bonus: As a Bay & Emmett Fan page, would you like to say anything for our followers, Bemmett shippers and SAB fans in general? Thank you so much for supporting the awesome shows on ABC Family. You all ROCK and it would be great to meet you some day! Until then, come visit me on Facebook and Twitter - Daniel Durant

1. What do you like most on your role in SAB?
I enjoyed meeting the casts and especially the crew. It is true what they say, SAB is like a family!

2. What was the biggest challenge you had working at SAB? (either character or personal challenge)
I can't think of one but there is a little something; it takes mentality to overcome the scorching heat from the sun to act well.

3. What was the first sign you learned?
Milk was my first sign. Mom was my second!

4. What is your favorite sign?
Peace is my favorite sign. I abuse it when I say "see you later."

5. What are your plans for the future?
I hope to work at a deaf school environment as an administrator.


We had the pleasure to interview this amazing upcoming deaf actress and got to know a little bit more about her personal life and career. Stephanie has great personality and always so humble and nice to give us so much attention for our little “Switched at Birth” community. Here it is: (BT=Bemmett Times SN= Stephanie Nogueras)

BT: We saw on your bio that your parents are hearing, but they raised you in the deaf community, what was your biggest challenge as a deaf kid in a hearing family?

SN: In case you do not know, I am a Puerto Rican-American. For every occasion, my family loves to spend time together to have a good time. They talk fast fluently in Spanish/English back and forth. I always miss good conversations every time they laugh which I loathe the most because I wanted to know what is go on and get involved with them. It can be frustrating. However, they do not know American Sign Language to interpret for me. Other than that, I am grateful to have my parents, sister, few of my relatives know how to communicate with me in sign language. From the bottom of my heart, that means so much to me because it does make me feel like a part of family.

BT: When did you first decide you wanted to become an actress or model?

SN: During the college years, after the modeling competition I decided to be a model. Several photographers enjoyed using my hair for photos, which was fun. After a little while, I searched for more. I moved to California to pursue a career in modeling. Unfortunately, not many opportunities for petite models in Los Angeles. In the fashion industry has height requirements for models which is 5’8 or above. I simply thought that is ridiculous because petite models are also beautiful. I moved on to other options and there is Switched at Birth. You see, acting chose me. I got an opportunity to audition for the role of Natalie. The results were my natural instincts and ability won the Producers over. That is what you call a lucky break or a blessing. (BT: Lucky us that got to see you on the screen of SAB!!)

BT: Is there any particular interesting story of your childhood you would like to share with us?

SN: An interesting story of my childhood... ballet. Oh, I miss that. Here is a story, when I was a little girl; around 5 years old, I started dancing ballet with all hearing ballerinas. I was focused all the time because I fell madly in love with ballet. My main goal was be a professional ballerina. I enjoyed dancing all through years until I had a car accident. I was not dancing for few years. One day, my mother decided taking me to the audition at the Rock School for Dance Education in Philadelphia. The Rock School for Dance Education is one of the nation's top pre-professional training programs. Even I reminded her that I did not dancing Ballet for a few years due to the car accident. Yet, I went for audition with all hearing ballerinas. I was nervous and looked at all professional ballerinas. They looked nicely and quietly looked at me as a deaf girl. They might wonder how could I hear music. I tried my best and danced away in front of a professor. In few weeks later, I got a call that I made it! My parents told me that I have two choices, between the Rock School for Dance and Maryland School for the Deaf. I had to make a difficult decision after a long thinking. My final decision was Maryland School for the Deaf. My family and I moved to Maryland till I graduated from Maryland School for the Deaf. Throughout years, I still look back and miss ballet. I save tutus, body wears, childhood ballet slippers, and pointe shoes in the box ever since. (BT: After that we wonder why wasn’t she on the dance episode?)

BT: What was your favorite job (apart from SAB) and why?

SN: Teaching American Sign Language because I love seeing clients get excited and motivated to communicate. (BT: Can we be your student? :-))

BT: What would be your dream role or modeling opportunity?

SN: All I wanted to be a good role model and be an inspiration to the Deaf/Hearing people around the world. That might be a long shot but one day there will be more opportunities for petite models.

BT: What kind of projects would you like to get involved with?

SN: I would like to help Deaf schools for the better education & to educate hearing families of deaf child about deafness around the world. Other countries are completely different than here, they are struggling which is sad. I could not stand to think about what the hearing parents went through with a deaf child or a deaf child went through with them. Here, USA, is definitely spoiled, Deaf Americans should be grateful for having technology, interpreters, and education better than nothing. It is a lot of work but I am willing to do it! (BT: That is a lot, but when helping people all effort is valid)

BT: We know you have a boyfriend, but for the fans, what do you look for in a man?

SN: A sense of humor, loving, supportive, loyal, and protective. (BT: Awww..Lucky Daniel)

BT: Have you ever done anything crazy for a friend? What? Why?

SN: Last year, I was (STILL) new to skiing. I am not sure how many Puerto Rican Americans ski. Haha. I believe I am the first person in the entire family to ski? Anyway, Ryan (Lane aka Travis) and Daniel (Durant aka Matthew) encouraged me to go with them. I thought they will take me to the area for beginner but…they actually took me to the black diamond area! You have no idea how much terrified I was when I saw downhill. My legs were shaking. I had to do it for them. Ryan and Daniel completely believed in me and rooted for me all the way, which was nice of them and I thank them for that but I fell down several times, flew off through the tree, and grabbed the branch at the same time. It made me go swirl then hit the ground. Thankfully, I wore helmet. It took me like 3 hours and a half to get all the way down to the finish line! My body was so sore next day and for few days! I walked like a zombie! Again, thank you Ryan and Daniel for your patience with me!!

BT: Let’s play favorites:

What is your favorite:
SN: Puerto Rican food!

BT: Sport?
SN: Swimming & tennis

BT: Hobby?
SN: Photography

BT: Color?
SN: Purple

BT: Book?
SN: Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

BT: Film?
SN: Rio &Avatar

BT: Place to go?
SN: France & some islands of Caribbean

About SAB:
BT: How did you feel when you got notified you got the role on SAB and how did it effect your life?

SN: I was shocked and completely surprised. My skin got goose bumps all over and rushed memories at once on my mind. It was like too good to be true but it happened because it was my first acting job. It affected my life in good ways. It made me believe in myself and gained my self-esteem. Today, I am more determined and motivated than ever.

BT: In the beginning, Natalie was a rebel, she gave Bay a hard time and then she planned to take over the school with Daphne so is Natalie planning another rebellion either with someone or for something?

SN: I feel that Natalie try her best to get along with hearing students as possible because of Bay. I am sure she is definitely concerned now.

BT: It is too soon for the viewers to know what will happen to Matthew, but how do you think Natalie should take sides? The friend that is making the mess (Matthew) and the friend who reported him to the school authorities (Emmett) It is a tough decision for any teenager on which friend will she support, right?

SN: Yes, it is not easy because you grew up with this person. You do not want to see this person get in trouble because you care about friendship. At the same time, you do not want to put yourself in that position to get trouble. It is a sticky situation.

BT: What would you like to see Natalie involved with or doing on the show?

SN: I would love to see Natalie to get involved with LGBT community to see her passion and support. And, Natalie should hang out with Bay more often since they are friends now. Switched at Birth fans should to get know Natalie more. (BT: YESSS, we so want Natalie and Bay scenes, they are so good as friends and so funny to watch :-))

BT: Can you tell us more about your mission to bring Deaf Awareness, what do you really want to do to help the Deaf community?

SN: My mission is to boost every deaf child’s self esteem to accept for who they are because in many countries, deaf children are struggling to live their life and especially left out. To educate hearing families about deafness, they can have a better relationship with their deaf child. Another important reason is to improve the educational system to give opportunities for children’s future. I would love to make a difference in child’s life.

BT: What would you like the most that the Deaf community would accomplish in the hearing world? (Ex; a law making every movie theatre to play with captions, make sure that every hospital has an interpreter or someone who knows asl 24 hrs for emergencies)

SN: I would like to see the Deaf community accomplishes goals in the hearing world, for example to get a job with accessible such as a high technology to communicate with hearing people at workplace. Hearing bosses would be more flexible for hiring Deaf people in the office or anywhere, etc. More deaf friendly. I would like to see both Hearing and Deaf workers use Iphones or Mini Ipads that can be used for communicating through text or relay. That will be great if there is newer technology better than that. I know several deaf friends, they filled several job applications and nothing happened. It is definitely frustrating because I understand how they feel. Few of them are lucky to have a job. Deaf people out there who are smart and got plenty of potential, they deserve to have a good job so they can have a good life.

BT: Any last comment about SAB or Deaf Awareness or both to our fan base?

SN: I truly appreciate to have your support because it means a lot to me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

We would like to THANK YOU for bringing Natalie to us! Thank you for your dedication and attention to the fans who so much appreciate your work!! Hoping all the best for you and looking forward to see a lot more of Natalie on the next season of Switched at Birth!
