Deaf Awareness Week, held annually the last full week in September, has been around since 1951 to commemorate the first meeting of the World Congress of the Deaf. However, deaf awareness weeks were actually an international initiative, started by the World Federation of the Deaf (WFD). During this week, both the WFD and the National Association of the Deaf (NAD) encourage schools, businesses, and communities to educate the public about deafness and the issues facing deaf people.
Whether its the psychological impact of being deaf, or the new technology being used for deaf people, this week is a way to share that with the outside world. As I. King Jordon, the first deaf president of an American university, said, “Deaf people can do anything except hear!”
