Deaf people & culture

Deaf people are unique in having both perspectives of disability and linguistic minority.
Sign language and Deaf culture strengthen multilingualism and are means of promoting, protecting and preserving diversity of languages and cultures.
Sign language is a critical prerequisite to the full realisation of human rights for Deaf people. Early access to sign language and services in sign language, including quality education available in sign language, is vital to the growth and development of the individual.
