How Switched at Birth Took Up Social Justice Issues Within and Beyond the Deaf Community

The original premise of Freeform’s compelling drama Switched at Birth was an immediate pull. Two young girls who were literally switched at birth, get to know each other, their real families, and the lives they would have had if not for the switch. Sprinkle in the added surprise that one of the girls is deaf, and there’s endless stories to tell which relate to social justice and social consciousness of the deaf and hard of hearing community. Yet Switched at Birth has gone above and beyond its promise to tell important stories. Not only has the drama shown the depth of issues about and within the construct of hearing loss, it has reached far beyond that to include important social issues rarely touched upon in television or anywhere else. Switched at Birth has proven they are not afraid to shy away from difficult topics. Moreover, they haven’t been afraid to accept the reality that many of the social justice issues they’ve touched upon don’t get a happy resolution, or sometimes any resolution. Such is life, and for a fictional drama the story remained as emotionally close to the truth as possible. From the very beginning there was a clear dialogue about deafness and American Sign Language. How would parents who have never interacted with a deaf person before learn to accept and communicate with their own deaf daughter? The conversations over various therapies and Cochlear implants was approached from different perspectives. Daphne Vazquez spent her whole life without a cochlear implant and was happily immersed in a school for the deaf. The mother that raised her made the decision she believed was in her child’s best interest, while Daphne’s biological parents believed an implant would give their daughter the best shot at a normal life. It was a serious conversation which is almost always discussed when a parent finds out their child is deaf, and the show was true to every single possible perspective on the subject. READ MORE...
