ASL 321 - Sociological Perspectives of Deaf Education

Deaf Education is a complex and controversial issue in the Deaf community; Is deafness looked upon as a way of life or a disability? Is sign language seen as a resource or a last resort? How do deaf people best learn and thrive? One's education experiences have a profound impact on self actualization and success as an deaf adult. This population faces unique circumstances regarding their own language and cultural competency, access to equivalent services, and relationships with other people. Students taking this course will learn about these circumstances in a specific context and examine the various options and perspectives facing deaf students in today's educational environments. Examining laws and policies pertaining to this field and being able to discuss such things will better prepare them to assist and advocate for clients in various settings.
