The hearing world believes that because someone is deaf he or she cannot do things that “hearing” can. The deaf and “hard of hearing” are just as capable of living normal lives as we are. One of the few differences is that they cut off from the usual forms of communications. It leads them to feel isolated, and make it hard to get information or help in an emergency. That is why they have their own community to lean on.
Unlike Broca's Aphasia patients, they are not aware of their speech problems. We talked about Wernickes aphasia also known as fluent aphasia which causes comprehension difficulties. For example, people can talk in sentences that do not have any meaning and say words that don't make any sense.

Some of the consequences of the Milan Conference include the banning of the use of signed languages in the classroom and making it so deaf could not educate other deaf. Which eliminated the blossoming bilingual education programs that were starting to emerge. Now that the use of signed language was taboo in classrooms the auditory-speech method of teaching became the only way. Which puts us in the sad state of education of the deaf we are in today. Because of the focus on speech and spoken language many other aspects of education are overlooked and not understood by a deaf student.

Their behavior can be a result of being uneducated about the differences between the hearing culture and the deaf culture.

People with autism can have problems understanding speech and language. Because of their defects they don’t feel the need to communicate and may very well not have any understanding of how other people might respond to a communicated message. Messages may also have an emotional component. Comprehension of speech and language is normally done through sound. This requires paying close attention to the sound(s) then being able to transfer them in terms of words then being able to understand the words intended meanings.
