I'd like to discuss...'s picture

I would like to learn more about oralism and how it affects the deaf community. I would also like to learn more about how oralism became the "correct" way for deaf people to communicate in society's eyes. In addition, I had a question about sign language. Is sign language universal? Is it the same in the United States as it is in other countries and parts of the world?
