Diversity of Deaf Identities.
Bat-Chava, Yael
American Annals of the Deaf, v145 n5 p420-28 Dec 2000
A study investigated the presence of three types of deaf identities (culturally deaf, culturally hearing, and bicultural) in 267 adults who are deaf. A subset of 56 people were interviewed. Qualified support was found for the prediction that people with culturally deaf and bicultural identities would have higher self-esteem. (Contains references.) (Author/CR)
