The deaf community is celebrating “Coda” after the film won three Academy Awards Sunday night, including best picture.
The movie is about a girl growing up as the only hearing person in her family. Troy Kotsur’s Oscar for best supporting actor was an emotional moment for many.
“It really applied to my experience with my daughter. She is a CODA. As a deaf parent, she was my girl who could hear but learned sign language growing up,” a parent tells News 12. 
News 12’s Dan Serafin shares more of the reaction at St. Joseph’s School for the Deaf in Throgs Neck.
