Auditory Disabilities: Deaf Culture


Subject:
Disabilities , Deafness & Hearing Disorders , Sign Language

Description:
Background about the strong sense of community (known as "deaf culture") among those "for whom sign language is their primary language" and how this sense of community differs from that of deaf people who have been "raised in the oral tradition, meaning that they were taught to speak vocally, and to 'read the lips' of others." From WebAIM, an initiative for web accessibility of the Center for Persons With Disabilities at Utah State University.
