This Deaf event was very different form every other deaf event that I’ve went to in the past. Let me start of by saying it was a far drive, I drove 28 miles to a place I have never been to, but it was worth the drive. This event was expensive but the reason I chose to go to this event was because it was the only one that fit in with my weekly schedule. As got to the event I was a bit late and everyone had taken their seats and there were no more seats left. But this very nice lady came to my rescue and found me a seat.
1. Introduction According to Singer (1998: 6) culture is made of “verbal and non-verbal language, attitudes, values, belief and disbelief systems and behaviors” which are “accepted and expected by an identity group”. While the Hearing always belonged to a culture that was accepted and deemed relevant by the majority, the Deaf did not have that. Within a predominately hearing culture the d/Deaf were viewed as disabled who were unable to perform well in society.
Nancy Rourke, the painter of Deaf Culture: Unity of Global Signing, was born deaf and grew up in a world of oralism (Northen, Spindel). Oralism is when someone teaches a deaf person how to read lips and talk instead of teaching them to sign (Oralism).

Her life transition did not begin until 2010 when she became involved in
I went to two different events this term, the first being a theater event promoted by Deaf Spotlight back on May 13th. The beginning of this event there was some time where I got to meet Deaf community members. One guy there I talked with a lot, his name was Jimmy K. and his sign name was a “J” trasitioning to a “K” by his shoulder. There were only about 10 Deaf people there for the event but it was nice to see everyone interacting together. Unfortunatly I learned that it was not a deaf primary event, and instead of focusing around ASL it had translators.
Transformation with Words Known as a violent, black civil rights activist Malcolm X revolutionized his unforgiving, street life to independent, educated pioneer. At a time of bigotry and isolation, Malcolm had his first epiphany on life regarding the importance of words; but in the same way as other incredible figures and history makers, everyone has a low point in life. At a young age, he was dependent on drugs and hustling for money with no care in the world but himself. Initially presented as an uneducated kid, who settled on wrong decisions and join with the wrong group, Malcolm's vocabulary definitely started colloquial and narrow. Indirectly he received loathsome propensities, yet he embraced the informal dialect basic to these areas.
Though Deaf Culture has been existant for quite some time, in was only formally recognized in 1965 (Deaf Culture, 2016). The members of Deaf Culture share the language of American Sign Language (Deaf Culture, 2016).

When working as an Occupational Therapist with the Deaf Culture, it is important to consider their values, and impliment them into the intervention.
I attended a deaf bible study that was ran through Calvary Chapel wildwood which is located in Yucaipa California on December 6th, 2015 I enjoyed observing the differences and similarities between the deaf community and what I experience during every day life. My first observation I noticed during the bible study is that the signing seemed to be very fast at times this made me feel lost but, it reminded me of how much I need to continue to learn American Sign Language. Although the gentlemen’s signing seemed to be expedited to me I noticed he signed very artfully as if he was painting a picture with his hands the beauty in his signing was very enjoyable to watch. Another observation I had was looking at the participants how excited they were
