There were some things in life that even magic couldn't heal and for Zakari Ollivander, being deaf was not something that he wanted to be "healed" of anyways. Never considering himself disabled, Zakari considered himself just to be slightly different growing up. He still enjoyed partaking in activities that other children his age were involved in, even if he had to find his own way to do them. It was a challenge sometimes, but Zakari was always up for a challenge. As the grandson of a famous wandmaker, Zakari's biggest challenge yet would come to the young boy when he receives his acceptance letter to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Without knowing him, people were quick to pass their judgement, believing the boy would struggle and calling it a waste of time trying to teach magic to a boy who couldn't hear and hardly spoke. However, Zakari sets himself out to prove that just because he was hard of hearing, didn't mean he didn't have anything to say. It was everyone else around him that needed to learn how to listen.

I don’t know if you’re aware, but you could bring it up, Hawkeye in the comics is canonically def.
That my friends, is Audism. The idea that every deaf/hard of hearing person needs to be like hearing people (such as talking and reading lips.) So hearing people don't have to take the time of learning to communicate with the Deaf.

What do you work as? I want to work as a speech pathologist or something with children with disabilities.
There's a TV show called Super Deafy  (Idk if it's still running but I think it is), the movie "the Hammer" about Matt Hamill, a deaf wrestler, and tons of deaf actors and tv shows. And again, audism.
Bless you! This was the most perfect and beautiful dedication ever. Thank you.
This is a beautiful dedication. I don’t think there are many people in this world who have a large enough heart to think in the way that you have.
