Education and Socialisation / Conclusion

Ladd CH 1 p. 43-44 Lentz

Mentions that Deaf community as a linguistic minority differs from other linguistic minorities in the sense that 90-95% of Deaf people learn the language and culture NOT from their parents, but the important avenue of Deaf schools. The conclusion emphasizes the need to build the historical dimension to the idea of traditional Deaf community so that modern variations have something to be measured against. Traditional Deaf community consists of Deaf people who attended Deaf schools and met either in Deaf clubs or at other Deaf social activities. Also, the term “Deaf community” is clarified to refer to the global/international community more than to one nation.
