Deaf people


Sometimes people get mistaken while considering their child as hearing impaired. It is sometimes not easy to identify them as deaf. Also deafness is sometimes misdiagnosed as autism and vice versa. Like the person who can talk, any deaf person may also find that annoying rattle of gibberish knocking around in the skull. Be it any language, the brain is determined to natters to itself. We sometimes say that our inner voice talk the language we know. So keeping this point in mind, think by which language deaf person communicate with their inner voice. As an answer to this it is said that the brain has a special capacity to develop phonological representations, even when it does not have auditory input. The representations may be dramatically different from hearing individuals say. According to some natives of America deaf are the peoples who use Primarily American Sign Language and consider themselves members of the Deaf Culture. This differentiates them from those who rely on speech. Though half a million Americans are deaf, no one knows how many people's first language is sign.
