Deaf Culture

 

Have you ever asked any of the following questions:

  • What is Deaf Culture?
  • Is it possible for individuals who are deaf / hard-of-hearing to have their own culture based on a diagnosis?
  • What is the difference between deaf and Deaf?

We have too. But instead of answering these questions (and more) here we’d like to point you to some other places that highlight some of the many issues living in that short list of questions. Please follow the links below to learn more. (all links lead to external websites, not managed by us)
