“About 6,000 individuals have had cochlear implants, since the late 1980’s. The cochlear implant is the first, and still the only neural prosthesis that is aiding a significant portion of a disabled population” (Hear). If a child is born deaf they are usually implanted young because doing so will help them have a greater chance of being on grade level in school and not have such a large learning gap. “The earlier a deaf child receives a cochlear implant, the better the child’s speech development” (Hear). Speech development is very important to young children because they need to know how to communicate with teachers and classmates.
When l 'Epee started the school, he transformed communicating phrase into communicating the exact words, this type of language became known as the Old Signed French. Later a minister named Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet was known for the largest development in sign language. Gallaudet neighbor daughter was deaf and he wanted to find ways to communicate with her. So in 1861, Gallaudet traveled to Europe, where many deaf school had been founded by graduates of l’Epee school. While in Europe Gallaudet he met a recent deaf graduate named Laurent Clerc.
It is a hard and laborious method and in the past often had extreme measures, that were border line abusive, put in place to try and ensure success. Manaulism is when a deaf person uses sign language as their primary from of communication. Learning to communicate using sign language is much more easier on a deaf or hard of hearing person. Although the majority of Deaf culture views oralism as a form of abuse and an attempt to “fix” their disability, instead of embracing their differences and culture, many deaf families view oralism as a way to interact with the “normal” society of the hearing world and embrace the idea of allowing their profoundly deaf children to “hear” and talk to hearing people through a spoken language. When people hear the word “deaf” many times they think of their grandparents or other elders who have lost their ability to hear due to old age.
The Redeafined magazine has an information about which is best in between with the institute for the Deaf or mainstream in a hearing school. The mainstream have “curriculum and teaching styles standardized across classrooms” and “signing students communicate through interpreters”. This can be for only few deaf and not many. “May have individual speed therapy”, and this school “will have more practice listening and speaking to communicate during the school day”. “Deafness likely viewed as a disability or medical problem”.
Deaf students should choose their career more carefully than normal students. Normal students can choose one from all careers, but Deaf students couldn’t so. Since all of careers are given to normal people. Deaf are able to specialize on almost all of careers, but they can’t work some working area.

De Lubac taught the fundamentals of theology at the Catholic University of Lyon up until 1961 (Voderholzer, 2008). Along with one of his students, Jean Daniélou, de Lubac founded the sources Chrétiennes, which is a collection of Christian texts (++). Although during his career at the University of Lyon he had a few interruptions. First during World War two de Lubac was forced into hiding due to his part in the French Resistance.
From this stemmed many of the false beliefs about signed language. Such as signed language will make the signer stupid, it will interfere with learning spoken language, and it is not an actual language. Thanks to many research studies done in the last 40 years these misconceptions have been disproved. We have learned that there is a better way of educating our deaf students: Bicultural-Bilingual (bi-bi) educational methods. 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.

All of these which hearing people take for granted. This means that a deaf person is often found in situations where they can’t follow what is being said and are often confused, scared, and isolated. The attitudes of hearing people toward Deaf people tend to pervade deaf/HOH people’s relationships with their family, educational environment, employers, and fellow co-workers. Some examples are, accepting lower expectations of themselves based on perceptions of hearing people, and lacking confidence as a result of being raised in an overprotective environment, or having things done for them. When it comes to education, deaf/HOH people are also discriminated against.
