  • Deaf Culture And Alcoholism - 858 words
    Deaf Culture And Alcoholism Deaf Culture and Alcoholism Abstract Why is it so hard for the deaf to deal with admitting they are alcoholics or drug addicts which is an impediment for recovery? Why is it so hard for them to stay sober once they have achieved it for a few weeks or months? What do you think the main reasons are? Having worked with the deaf for over 30 years I will try to answer these questions and research other aspects of the deaf culture, their mode of communication and alcoholism. Although it may seem that communication is an aspect of every culture, two of the unique features are that there is not always a common language between parents and child, and there is no written fo ...

  • Deaf President Now - 292 words
    Deaf President Now ASL 1 4 October 2000 Deaf President Now Protest #2 First of allI had no clue of how large of an issue The Deaf President Now Protest was. It surprised me that it had not been talked about in my past history classes. The Deaf President Now Protest was so symbolic to that of the Womans Rights Movement and Civil Rights Movement. It might have been a smaller issue due to the fact that the Deaf Community is smallerhowever, the protest was just as big. It really upsets me that I didnt learn about this until I took an ASL course. While reading this article, there were many statements that struck me in a negative manner. It irritated me that Gallaudet treated the students unfairly ...

  • Employment - 1,160 words
    Employment What is the purpose of a career? A career provides a framework for life development; a sort of independence one can have in his or her life. Employment provides a person with the opportunity for social interaction and a salary with which to provide the resources needed to survive. Finding a job in America is not an easy task to say the least. So what are the odds of a hearing impaired person finding a job that is both of interest and ability level? If one is deaf the chances of finding a job are less than optimal. One that is deaf or hard of hearing must overcome prejudices and gain acceptance in order to become successful at their chosen career. Studies have shown that a majority ...

    Hearing Loss Being deaf is a handicap that afflicts millions of people around the world every year.

  • Lab Report: Beginning Asl 3 4 - 711 words
    Lab Report: Beginning ASL 3 & 4 Sign language is a method of communication of which I am becoming more and more familiar. This is in great part to a series of videos I am currently watching entitled The Bravo Family, Beginning ASL 1-15. I have recently finished watching videos three and four. I have discovered there are many things that I did not know concerning such topics as the culture and grammar of the deaf community. I feel these are two aspects which deserve an abundance of credit and require a large amount of studying. The culture of the deaf community is still thriving and continues to grow in strength. This in spite of the years of suppression that people have enforced on these uni ...

  • Least Restrictive Environment - 1,228 words
    Least Restrictive Environment Although the ideas and reasons for inclusive education are very noble and can have a positive effect on many disabled students, mandating inclusion for all disabled students denies some the opportunity to appropriately learn in the least restrictive environment (LRE) as required by law. The fight for inclusive education has made enormous gains from when the National Association of Retarded Children was established in 1950 to 1990 when the public law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), P.L. 94-142, was revised. Educational systems have moved from not providing education at all for the disabled to providing schools for the disabled separ ...

Most of the people, in this world live in a world of sounds, and these people often take them for granted. Nevertheless, we completely depend on sounds to get through our everyday lives.
