Why would anyone choose to be with people with whom they could communicate only with great difficulty? Like any other subculture, the Deaf community has its own social structures, organizations, attitudes, and values. The National Association of the Deaf (NAD) has been in existence since 1880, but recent years have seen the mobilization of a variety of other groups and greater political activity by them and the NAD. Among the results of such activities are the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the creation of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (a division of the National Institutes of Health) which plays an important role in promoting quality research relating to hearing loss and deaf children.

The result is greater parental involvement (but less intrusiveness) in their children’s activities, a situation known to enhance both early language development and later academic achievement. Indeed, family involvement has been found to be a stronger predictor of early language development than either the age at which early intervention begins or a child’s degree of hearing loss (Moeller, 2000). As with most early intervention programs, family-centered programs are about much more than just language.
