National Deaf History Month

As blog posts about specific signs are becoming slightly repetitive, and as we get closer to April 15th, I thought it was important to take time this week to tell you all a little bit about National Deaf History Month.

It is celebrated from March 13th (which marked the first time that Gallaudet University, the only university in the world designed specifically for deaf learners, hired its first deaf president) through April 15th (the day that America’s first public school for the deaf was opened). Also included within this time period is yet another historical date which marks the founding of Gallaudet University: April 8th.

Before Deaf History Month ends, I hope you’ll take some time to learn more about the Deaf community and its significant history, as well as celebrate any Deaf / Hard of hearing members within your community.
