Fast Facts: Deaf Community

It often comes as a surprise to people that many individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing refer to themselves as being members of the Deaf community and ascribe to Deaf culture.

The characteristics of Deaf culture are formed out of many shared life experiences rooted in a visual world designed for communication ease.
