Hello, world! If you’re viewing this post, it’s probably because of the NPR article or Deaf Out Loud (which is still available on iTunes, Amazon Prime and Hulu.)
By the way, the week that Deaf Out Loud aired (in September 2018), it became the #1 downloaded reality t.v. show and the #7 overall on iTunes. We’re not surprised — it’s really, really good. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out. Even the New York Times picked it as a “must-see.”
We’d love to work with you. Public speaking, consulting and/or advocacy — you name it, we can make it happen.
Please feel free to check out our website (all the information is still current.)
We’re also VERY active on social media… which is where we’re putting most of our networking energy these days.

One of the services that Posner Inclusion, LLC also provide is Wedding/Event planning. In the past two weeks, Rachel was asked to coordinate two significant events, one being a gala for a national education-related organization and a wedding.
As a wedding coordinator, Rachel maintained contact with all vendors and venue management during the planning stages and acted as a liaison on behalf of the bridal party and all participants.
Utilizing her creativity and expertise, she coordinated the details based on the wedding party’s vision. Furthermore, she was able to prep the vendors and venue management on what to expect regarding the evening, which required seamless communication up until the moment the newlyweds were sent off, happily ever after.
Let’s have a conversation about how Posner Inclusion, LLC can help you plan your next corporate or personal event. You can reach us at our easy-to-use form and we’ll take care of the rest.
We’d love to hear from you — let’s talk about it over lunch.

We are excited to announce that the documentary, Deaf Out Loud, will be aired on the A&E network on Wednesday, September 5th at 10:00 p.m.
“In addition, A&E has also announced that the Sept. 5 season finale (of Born This Way) will be followed at 10/9c by the debut of Deaf Out Loud, a documentary special from EP Marlee Matlin that follows the lives of three predominantly deaf families as they raise their children in a hearing world.”
Updates will continue to be posted here.
We’re also on Facebook. Follow us for even more updates and if you are interested in having your business promoted on our page, talk to us.
We’re also looking to exchange advertising with other small businesses. If you own a business, have a Facebook page dedicated to your company and would like to participate, give us a shout out. Let’s make something happen.
It has been a very busy month at Posner Inclusion, LLC. We recently secured a long-term partnership with a local school district, providing ASL-related consultations for their Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing students.
Mick was also recently featured in the book, Inspiring Equality, which tells the stories of different people that makes up the fabric of West Hartford’s community. For more information, please visit: https://we-ha.com/inspiring-equity-offers-unique-look-west-hartfords-diversity/
We are looking forward to 2018 – new projects, partnerships and ventures. Thank you all for your continued support.
Over the last few months, we partnered with Bunim/Murray. If the name rings a bell, they’re the folks who brought you Born this Way, MTV’s Real World and Road Rules and Project Runway, to name a few. It was an incredible experience and a honor to work with some of the finest people in the industry.
Getting ready for some screen time.
With Posner Inclusion, LLC, one of our mantras is that nothing is impossible. If you can think of it, you can make it happen. Whether it’s on-screen or behind the scenes, we will find a way to help your business prosper. You could say that problem-solving is a hobby of ours and achieving goals is what we do best.
The idea of launching our own consulting business was something that we talked about doing for years. Truth be told, we’ve been doing this for a long time — both of us worked with different communities. It wasn’t until we had an opportunity to work with the amazing folks at Bunim/Murray Productions (along with their support) that our venture came to fruition.
Check out our site. Let us know what you think. Talk to us. Ask us anything.
We provide speaking engagements and consulting in many disciplines. Our focus is helping you — and your business — grow by connecting you to unique communities.
We had the pleasure of partnering with the Archdiocese of Hartford’s Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis regarding their outreach of the deaf community.
Check out their webpage which includes some basic ASL being taught by our very own Faith and Henry:
Given the gravity of recent events between police and members of the deaf/hard-of-hearing community, we have recently developed a training program for police departments in the United States in order to assist them in becoming an even stronger resource for the under-served populations.
Part of what we cover:
- What are the norms of Deaf Culture?
- What does the ADA state if a deaf person requests an interpreter?
- How to effectively mitigate risk factors when working with the deaf/hard-of-hearing citizens;
- Communicating with deaf/hard-of-hearing children especially in emergency situations;
- Learning basic ASL signs/commands that can be utilized in almost any situation.
Our training objectives, guidelines and outline is available upon request. Please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com to initiate discussion on how we can best serve your municipality.

On September 26, 2017, Mick was a panelist at the “Breaking the Sound Panel,” an event hosted by University of Connecticut.
“Deaf individuals have struggled through a history of marginalization, with limited opportunities for employment and education among countless other barriers. We at the University of Connecticut are honored to host a vibrant community of Deaf and Hard of Hearing students, faculty, and staff. Because the Deaf/Hard of Hearing community has grown, so has the community of ASL users on campus. In an effort to increase awareness across the board about the thriving Deaf and Hard of Hearing community here in Connecticut, this evening will offer you the opportunity to meet Deaf scientists, engineers, doctoral students, psychologists, mathematicians, medical providers, counselors, and just about any other professional field imaginable.” – UCIS
