Deaf Society

Sign Language is a Beautiful and very Inspired!

The World Federation of the Deaf (WFD) is an international non-governmental organization that acts as a peak body for national associations of Deaf people, with a focus on Deaf people who use sign language and their family and friends. WFD aims to promote the Human Rights of Deaf people worldwide, by working closely with the United Nations (with which it has consultative status) and various UN agencies such as the International Labour Organization (ILO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). WFD is also a member of the International Disability Alliance (IDA). The current 11 board members are all Deaf. The offices are located in Helsinki, Finland.

Briefs Culture and History of DEAF people

Deaf Culture - Describes the social beliefs, behaviors, art, literary traditions, history, values and shared institutions of communities that are affected by deafness and which use sign languages as the main means of communication. When used as a cultural label, the word Deaf is often written with a capital D, and referred to as "big D Deaf" in speech and sign. When used as a label for the audiological condition, it is written with a lower case d.

Deaf Culture - What is it? First, we have to look at the definition of culture in general - patterns, traits, products, attitudes, and intellectual/artistic activity associated with a population. Based on this definition, the Deaf community can be said to have its own unique culture. Deaf and hard of hearing people produce plays, books, artwork, magazines, and movies targeted at Deaf and hard of hearing audiences. In addition, the Deaf community engages in social and political activities exclusive to the Deaf community. American Deaf culture is a living, growing, changing thing as new activities are developed and the output of intellectual works increases.

Deaf History - The history of Deaf people and its culture makes up a bunch of Deaf history. The Deaf culture is an ethnocentric culture that is centered around signed language and relationships among one another. Unlike other cultures the Deaf culture is not associated with any native land as it is a global culture. Although by some, deafness maybe viewed as a disability, the Deaf-World sees itself as a language minority. Throughout the years many accomplishments have been achieved by Deaf people. To name the most famous, Ludwig Van Beethoven and Thomas Alva Edison were both Deaf and contributed great works to culture.

Deaf History - Deaf history and heritage is very rich and fascinating. People wanting to learn about deafness in history can read about events such as the Deaf President Now movement that brought Gallaudet University its first Deaf president, learn about the development of hearing assistive technology, read about segregation in schools for the Deaf, and learn about the many people in history who were Deaf, Deaf History/Heritage. What is presented here is only a sampling of what can be learned in Deaf History/Deaf Studies.

Deaf History -People, places, and events in Deaf history, including Helen Keller, Thomas Gallaudet, the Deaf President Now movement, and Deaf people on television. Books on Deaf history recommended by either your guide or by About deafness visitors.
