Young woman learning sign language

The BBC podcast The Why Factor recently aired an episode called “Sign Language” that explains the divide in the deaf community on the significance of sign language and how deafness is perceived.

According to the BBC, some members of the deaf community believe learning sign language is part of a “cultural legacy” that celebrates their status, while others believe it is more important to utilize hearing aids to learn verbal language as a way of integrating with the hearing world.
