Ignoring the Oralism is like Ignoring the Disease

Ignoring the Oralism is like Ignoring the Disease

Some people have suggested us to focus on the promotion of Deaf Culture, including American Sign Language and to ignore the Oralism. I agree with them about the Culture; however, about the Oralism, I beg to differ.

Focusing the health, we should examine any symptom for disease. Focusing the education, we should examine any symptom for the Oralism.

The Oralism has been harming so many Deaf babies and children around the world due to its dangerous methods. The Oralism has been making lots of money at the expense of parents and their Deaf children. The Oralism supporters have modified the failed methods to protect the interests of the Oralism by providing inappropriate and irrelevant information to governments and society at large. Many people have known about corrupt practices; however, they still support the practices. For that, they are cruel and mean. They should know better than that! They have done inhuman practices against the humanity.

We can do both by promoting Deaf Culture and checking any symptom for the Oralism.

  1. It is a big corruption, all right! Oralism has been hurting many things–for example, globalization–money-hunters.

    ASL is for the Deaf an intellectual experience and is distinguished from spoken and written language, which is pure respite from the existing oral method of education—listening, speaking and speechreading–like you said, inhuman practice. We need to change those deficit thinkers.
