International Week of Deaf People

(September 18 – 24) 

A World Where Deaf People Everywhere Can Sign Anywhere!

The DCDL celebrates the International Week of Deaf People, a week dedicated to the Deaf populations around the world. Here are videos, ebooks, and resources for your viewing and reading pleasure.

Deaf people inhabit a rich sensory world where vision and touch are a primary means of spatial awareness and orientation. Many use sign language, a visual-kinetic mode of communication, and have a strong cultural identity built around shared life experiences.
