Deaf Culture:
Social And Cultural View

The modern view of deafness involves the recognition of Deaf people as a cultural minority. Sign Language is recognized and accepted as the natural language of Deaf people.

This acceptance includes the acknowledgement that the Deaf community is in fact a sub-cultural group of the wider world.

This view involves the recognition of Deaf people as a group of persons who share a common means of communication (Sign Language) and culture, which provides the basis on which group cohesion and identity develop.

Deaf people do not consider themselves as disabled.
