Welcome to "It's a Deaf Deaf World."
Niedermaier, Jan
Perspectives for Teachers of the Hearing Impaired, v7 n5 p18-20 May-Jun 1989
Hearing-impaired high school students created a simulated world where sign language was the dominant mode of communication, and role-played such careers as doctors, bankers, and police officers. Hearing students were invited to visit this simulated world and found how inaccessible various facilities and services were to people without sign language skills. (JDD)
