Deaf Like Me

Written by the uncle and father of a little girl who happens to be deaf, this story sensitively weaves reality and learning in with a fairly simple account of coming to terms with deafness, and the family´s fight to teach their deaf daughter to speak. A moving story of how a deaf girl breaks the chains of ignorance and prejudice that held her mute for years- to discover the world she cannot hear and to teach her family what love and being normal really mean.

This new edition contains a special epilogue by Lynn Spradley, grown and in her twenties. This epilogue is excellent and adds a distinct new dimension to the entire book.
by Thomas S. Spradley and James P. Spradley. Published 1985, revised 1989

Open Your Eyes

Open Your Eyes introduces readers to the key concepts and debates in deaf studies, offering perspectives on the relevance and richness of deaf ways of being in the world. Leading and emerging scholars, the majority of whom are deaf, consider physical and cultural boundaries of deaf people; they explore the role of gender, sexuality, disability, family and race. They explore literacy in the light of sign language and delve into the dimensions of the disability label often assigned to deafness.

This book shows how culture contributes vital insights on issues of identity, language and power; and ultimately challenges our culture´s obsession with normalcy.

This is an American book. The editor, Professor Dirksen Bauman is a professor of Deaf Studies at Gallaudet University. While the book is written from the American perspective it is just as applicable to Australian Deaf Culture as it is American.

Seeing Voices - Oliver Sacks

With Seeing Voices, Dr. Sacks launches on a journey into the world of the deaf, which he explores with passion and insight. Seeing Voices begins with the history of deaf people in the United States, the often outrageous ways in which they have been seen and treated in the past, and their continuing struggle for acceptance in a hearing world. And it examines the amazing and beautiful visual language of the deaf Sign which has only in the past decade been recognized fully as a language, linguistically complete, rich, and as expressive as any spoken language.

"The existence of a visual language, Sign, and of the striking enhancements of perception and visual intelligence that go with its acquisition, shows us that the brain is rich in potentials we would scarcely have guessed of, shows us the almost unlimited resource of the human organism when it is faced with the new and must adapt." Oliver Slacks
