Deaf Awareness


Points to ponder:


Deaf people are no different than hearing people; they simply can't hear.

Sign Language is the third most used language in the United States.

Deaf people can make phone calls using a machine called a TDD. The problem is that both people must have a TDD or rely on a service called "Relay".

If all the deaf lived in one country, they would be the fifth largest country in the world.

Most deafness is not caused by heredity.

Most deaf children are born to hearing parents.

Deaf people have better driving records than hearing people.

American Sign Language is a foreign language.

People in France and China talk a different sign language than American deaf people.

There are deaf people anywhere you go.
