What I'd Like to Cover in our Deaf Culture Unit

During our Deaf culture unit, I'd like to learn more about the impact that the oralism movement had on Deaf culture and education. I know that eventually, oralism was found to contribute to language deprivation in Deaf children, which is when a child doesn't have access to a language to learn during their critical language formation period (whether it be verbal language or sign language) but I'd like to know more about how it shaped the Deaf cultural landscape.
