Example text

The common representation for hearing identity is “think hearing,” “passing as hearing,” or behaving as a hearing person does (Bat-Chava, 2000; Cole & Edelman, 1991; Padden & Humphries, 1988). According to Glickman (1996a), late-deafened individuals who lose their hearing after internalizing hearing-based identities are the prototype for the culturally hearing stage. For these individuals, becoming deaf is a major disability as manifested in the loss of meaningful connections with others and subsequently the exacerbation of emotional loneliness and isolation.

However, without theoretical foundations that buttress the identity constructs being labeled, it is difficult to make sense of the Deaf identity development process and the social context within which this development takes place. Researchers have relied on diverse theories to elucidate the meaning of identity constructs. We start first with the disability-based perspective utilized by Weinberg and Sterritt (1986). Disability Framework Weinberg and Sterritt (1986) define deaf children as having a disability, with parents striving to encourage their children to appear and behave as “able-bodied” as possible, apropos of the medical model.

All Deaf people may be seen as rejecting of the newcomer if there are communication barriers due to nonfluent signing. Finally, there is the Acceptance stage, which encompasses becoming comfortable with personal and social identities, the reactions from both the in-group and others, and with functioning effectively in the chosen social setting. This identity exploration process is exemplified by Hilde, who realized in late adolescence that even though she wanted to be part of her hearing environment, she could not pass as a hearing person.
