WAMU’s “Metro Connection” featured Gallaudet research in the June 28 story “Gallaudet Finds Deaf People Don’t See Better, They See Differently,” a feature by host/producer Rebecca Sheir. The piece covered a research brief issued by the National Science Foundation Science of Learning Center on Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2) entitled, “Visual Attention and Deafness.” Sheir interviewed VL2 Co-Principal Investigator Thomas Allen and Coordinator of Community Engagement Melissa Malzkuhn for the story, which was also picked up by Associated Press.
