Deaf Culture:
Background

Historically, Sign Language as the main element that binds Deaf people together was suppressed and not accepted in a deaf person's life, i.e. at home, school and society in general.

Deaf people were seen as deviants from general society and therefore in need of rehabilitation.

This gave rise to a view of deafness called the clinical or pathological view.
