Oralism’s Grip over Society’s View on Deaf People


Ladd CH1 p.30-32 Falgier (9:05)

Discusses the Oralism/Mask of Benevolence’s powerful grip on media in framing society’s thinking about Deaf people and their issues — confusing them about Deaf people as individuals vs as a community. Also, Oralism colonialism damaged Deaf organizations’ abilities to be Deaf-centered, confident, independent from the Mask of Benevolence.
