Local deaf toddler's story gets national attention
It's a story getting a lot of coverage. We brought it to you Wednesday night on News 5. And Thursday morning, the Today Show even did the feature on 3 year old Hunter from Grand Island.
He's deaf and uses his hands to sign his name by crossing the first two fingers, but his family says they were asked to change the sign but his school.
He has been a part of the Grand Island Early Intervention Program since he was 6 months old.
Hunter's parents say his early intervention home visitor asked them if they would change his name because they felt it was inappropriate.
But the Grand Island Public School District says they are not requiring any student to change their sign language name.
