Example text

Disability Framework Weinberg and Sterritt (1986) define deaf children as having a disability, with parents striving to encourage their children to appear and behave as “able-bodied” as possible, apropos of the medical model. In providing an example of deaf children not being encouraged to use sign language to minimize identification as deaf, which then might doom them to feelings of inferiority because they cannot really achieve able-bodied status (hearing status), the authors acknowledge the potential negative impact of such an approach.

Simply put, this process is a search for the Deaf voice and Deaf identity through analyzing similarities and differences related to the meaning of completeness, the value of being, the concept of wellness, and the nature of solidarity. In the eyes of many hearing people, Deaf people appear incomplete because of the lack of auditory connection to spoken language, whereas for Deaf persons themselves “Deaf” asserts a state of being that reflects completeness. ” As for the concept of wellness, the biological interpretations of inadequately functioning hearing mechanisms create impressions of ill health in need of attention, an impression denied by the healthy Deaf body.

And not within the deaf world (Bauman, 2005, p. 314). Lennard Davis (2007, 2008) sees the use of “ethnic” as also involving the biological domain, with reference to race, and as a precursor to racial profiling, with its attendant potentially negative consequences, including discrimination. He questions whether the ethnicity is lost for those who choose to speak and refers to contested boundaries about who is in and who is out. While acknowledging the issue of contested boundaries, Krentz (2007) argues for the empowering aspect of ethnic identity and the safe haven nature of the signing-Deaf community.
