However, the relatively small sample size is a limiting factor. In the future, it would be interesting to look at adult CI users who received a CI in early childhood and grew up with a CI. There are still only a few studies that have examined long-term outcomes based on reports from the patients themselves [ 59 , 95 ]. Of course, global self-esteem would be one such long-term outcome. An interesting population are those DHH people who are CI users but identify with the Deaf community, an important linguistic and cultural minority [ 35 , 37 , 39 , 43 , 54 , 64 ].
Sign language is their first language, and their psychosocial development, including self-esteem, continue to be affected by the Deaf community. To take account of the special role of sign language, it would seem appropriate—irrespective of whether a person uses a CI or not—to adapt RSES to Polish Sign Language. In the original RSES, the majority of items assume high language competency.
It would help if RSES were modified linguistically to make it accessible to those members of the DHH population who have limited competency in either spoken or sign language. A limitation of the presented study relates to its cross-sectional design and the purely correlational approach.
This means we cannot say for sure that use of a CI contributes to raising global self-esteem, although the two factors are at least correlated. It seems reasonable to assume that the CI, through its ability to provide a form of hearing and the associated nonaudiological benefits , will support psychosocial processes such as language development and interaction with the environment, and therefore help improve the quality of life of DHH people. In doing that, it appears to contribute to their global self-esteem. Self-esteem is important, especially for populations at risk of mental health problems, which is the DHH population.
Despite all the unquestionable benefits of a CI as a hearing prosthesis, not all CI users deal completely with the trauma of hearing loss. Thus, as de Graaf and Bijl postulated more than 15 years ago [ 27 ], every effort should be made to psychologically support DHH people in accepting their deafness or hearing loss, and to raise and improve their global self-esteem—which will in turn reduce their mental distress.
There is no reason to think it is different when it comes to the DHH population. Browse Subject Areas? Click through the PLOS taxonomy to find articles in your field. Abstract Objective Self-esteem is a good predictor of mental health and is crucial for well-being and psychological functioning. Methods Data were obtained from questionnaires mailed to patients who, when adult, had received a CI. Results The self-esteem of deaf and partially deaf CI users was significantly lower than in the general population, especially for post-lingually deafened subjects.
Conclusion Deafness and partial deafness appear to be risk factors for lower self-esteem, a finding that rehabilitation, medical, educational, and employment communities should be made aware of. Funding: The authors received no specific funding for this work. Outline of the current study The present study on global self-esteem concerns adults with deafness or partial deafness.
Pre-lingual and post-lingual hearing loss Pre-lingual deafness is usually associated with childhood difficulties in developing speech and language [ 29 — 34 ]. Self-esteem and hearing loss A meta-analysis of self-esteem in the DHH population in the s concluded that self-esteem was lower than, or perhaps similar to, those with normal hearing [ 42 ].
Rationale for the present study In view of the previous findings mentioned above, there is much about self-esteem that still needs to be clarified, particularly when the CI factor is added. Aim of the study The purpose of the study was to assess the global self-esteem of deaf and partially deaf subjects who have used one CI from adulthood. Material and method Participants The study group consisted of CI users aged 22 to 60 years old. Download: PPT. Table 1. Results Global self-esteem in the study group ranged from 17 to 40 points the higher the value, the more positive self-esteem.
Self-esteem in relation to sociodemographic variables Global self-esteem for subgroups with different sociodemographic characteristics is presented in Table 2. Table 2. Average results of RSES in relation to sociodemographic data standard deviations shown in brackets. Table 3. Average results of RSES in relation to onset and degree of hearing loss standard deviations shown in brackets. Self-esteem in CI users in comparison to those with normal hearing Dzwonkowska et al. The combined effect on self-esteem of sociodemographic factors and variables associated with hearing loss To summarize the combined effect on self-esteem of sociodemographic factors and variables associated with hearing loss, multiple hierarchical regression was performed.
Table 4. Multiple linear regression analysis for RSES of study group. Discussion The present study has investigated the important psychological underpinnings of global self-esteem in a special population—DHH adults whose hearing loss had different onsets pre- or post-lingual and levels profoundly deaf or partially deaf. Self-esteem and variables associated with deafness and CI use In overview, the subjects who had been using a CI since adulthood had lower self-esteem compared to the general normally hearing population. Limitations and proposals for the future These studies are among the first to address the self-esteem of the DHH including some who were partially deaf who had used a CI from adulthood.
Conclusion Self-esteem is important, especially for populations at risk of mental health problems, which is the DHH population. Supporting information. S1 File.

Looking at a variety of cultural texts, she brings her fascination with borders and between-places to expose and enrich our understanding of how deafness embodies itself in the world, in the visual, and in language.
Taking on the creation of the modern deaf subject, Brueggemann ranges from the intersections of gender and deafness in the work of photographers Mary and Frances Allen at the turn of the last century, to the state of the field of Deaf Studies at the beginning of our new century. She explores the power and potential of American Sign Language—wedged, as she sees it, between letter-bound language and visual ways of learning—and argues for a rhetorical approach and digital future for ASL literature.
The narration of deaf lives through writing becomes a pivot around which to imagine how digital media and documentary can be used to convey deaf life stories.
Finally, she expands our notion of diversity within the deaf identity itself, takes on the complex relationship between deaf and hearing people, and offers compelling illustrations of the intertwined, and sometimes knotted, nature of individual and collective identities within Deaf culture. She has authored, edited, or co-edited seven books. Clearly a must-read. Fascinating and essential reading for students and scholars in both fields. Convert currency. Add to Basket.

Examples of such apps are, but not limited to, FaceTime, Skype, and Glide. Vlogs: Video blogs are very popular in the Deaf community. Vlogs are ideal because ASL is a visual language and is a much better platform for many in the Deaf community. Caption Glasses are special glasses that one wears at a movie theater to access the closed captioning.
Closed caption "stands" refer to a captioning device that is placed in the cup holder. It is a small screen that is attached to a flexible pole and the base is inserted into the cup holder. Closed Captioning refers to captions, text, or subtitles that are embedded hidden in a video signal and can be turned on or off displayed on demand. In the past these captions used to require a special decoder device to be seen. In the "old days" this decoder was a box that sat on top of your TV.
Now the decoder is commonly included in TV circuitry and is not a separate device. These captions are turned on or off using your TV' or video player's configuration menu. Internet-based streaming video players if they support captioning tend to have a symbol or button labeled "CC" that can be used to turn captioning on or off. The captioner often is in the same room as the Deaf consumer although not always. The Deaf consumer will read the captioning on a computer screen. End of the newer version of the study guide.
Below is the older version. As of the time of this writing early 21st century the word Deaf has been accepted by the culturally Deaf community and major organizations representing Deaf people such as the National Association of the Deaf and the World Federation of the Deaf as an acceptable and proper term to use when discussing Deaf people. An example of terminology evolution can be found in the commonly thought of meaning the abbreviation: VR. During the 's through early 's many Deaf people associated those letters with the term "vocational rehabilitation.
Capitalization : Some people feel the word Deaf should always be capitalized for ethnic reasons. The term "ethnic" refers to the classification of large groups of people according to shared cultural, linguistic, racial, tribal, religious, or national origins or backgrounds. Other people prefer to use the capitalized word "Deaf" when referring to being culturally Deaf and use the lowercase word "deaf" to refer to the physical condition of being deaf. If you are a student in a Deaf Studies program you should check with your instructor regarding preferred local writing "style guidelines" at your school.
This study guide in general uses the lowercase word "deaf" to refer to the physical condition of "not hearing. Please don't get hung up on a typo or a "yet to be updated not-yet-capitalized" use of the word "deaf" in this guide or website. Focus on understanding the concepts not worrying about the typos. Embracing the cultural norms and values of the Deaf Community.
Captions : Captions or captioning refers to the use of subtitles on movies or videos to convey via text the voiced information or sounds that are happening in video. The phrase "open captioned" is the equivalent of "subtitled" and doesn't need to be "turned on" since it is made part of the viewable video and can't be "closed" or "turned off". It is a much better phrase than "The Deaf and Hearing Impaired. Think of the phrase "Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing" and the term "Deaf" as looking through a microscope if you look under high power you see the distinctions.
When you look at the Deaf Community closely you notice, "Oh, there are some HH who can voice and have enough residual hearing to make use of hearing-aids to communicate directly albeit with difficulty with Hearing people either in person or on the phone -- and there are others Deaf in the community who don't voice, don't wear hearing aids, and communicate with Hearing people only via writing, in-person interpreters, video-relay interpreters, or if the Hearing person knows sign sign language.
However, if you pull your microscope back a bit and take a broader view, you see they are all part of the "Deaf Community" and thus are all "Deaf. Deaf School : Generally refers to state-run residential schools for the Deaf. Culturally Deaf adults who attended a Deaf School are proud of that fact. A "Deaf School" specifically refers to a state residential school. The Deaf Community is made up of individuals that use sign language and are focused on living their lives rather than trying to change their status and live in the Hearing World.
Thus a preacher or parent who learns sign language might be a part of the Deaf Community but a cochlear implant doctor is not. An interpreter who goes to Deaf events, has Deaf friends, and supports Deaf causes is a part of the Deaf Community. But an interpreter who simply goes to a day job where they interpret for one Deaf client and then goes home and has little or no additional contact with Deaf people -- is not a member of the Deaf Community.
Deaf: Culturally Deaf people prefer to be called Deaf. However you should know that there are growing numbers of people within Deaf Community that strive to avoid using the word "deafness" in their writing and communication because it has traditionally been a label applied to Deaf people by Hearing people in the context of "disability.
Conversely, when discussing ourselves, our personal journeys, our level of self-acceptance, and our progress toward self-actualization as a person who is Deaf we often use the term "Deafhood. The term "deafness" has its uses and may persist indefinitely but you should at least be aware that "some" bloggers and activists are actively denouncing the term.
That doesn't mean that there aren't physically deaf people in the U. Dominant Hand : The hand you do most of your signing with. Elizabeth Zinser, a hearing woman, had been newly elected president of Gallaudent University. The students and international Deaf Community protested and demanded a Deaf president be appointed instead. This resulted in I.

King Jordan, a Deaf man, becoming president of Gallaudet University. Fingerspelling is also sometimes called "The Manual Alphabet. Font, ASL : There are type fonts that resemble fingerspelling. A popular fingerspelling font is called "Gallaudet TrueType " and is available for download for free from the net. GA : means Go Ahead. This is an abbreviation commonly used while typing on a TTY teletype. It means you are done with your turn and it is the other person's turn to go ahead and type. Left-handed people also fingerspell with their left hand.
Some hard-of-hearing people choose to learn sign language, form relationships with other Deaf, join Deaf organizations, attend Deaf events, embrace their Deafhood, and call themselves Deaf. It is acceptable for culturally Deaf hard-of-hearing individuals to simply refer to themselves as Deaf.
We refer to ourselves as being Deaf. When referring to all people with a hearing loss we tend to use the phrase, "Deaf and hard of hearing. The phase Hearing Impaired was never embraced by the Deaf Community. The term "Hearing" is sometimes applied broadly to refer to all people who have the ability to hear. Within the Deaf Community the term "Hearing" often refers to people who have functional hearing, prefer to talk, and are generally unfamiliar with sign language and Deaf Culture.
This is sometimes also written as HoH. Hard-of-hearing people have some hearing loss but can generally use the phone with amplification and can generally understand spoken speech depending on a number of factors including: distance, volume, facial hair, lighting, familiarity with topic, situational cues, accents, and noise. Thus the environment has a big impact on whether a HH person functions as a Hearing person or a Deaf person. Deaf children are entitled to an IEP.
We generally refer to individuals who interpret between sign language and spoken language as "interpreters" not "translators". Note: "Interpreter" is spelled with an "er" at the end, not an "or". Some of us are stone deaf and can't hear an oncoming train and have died because of it. Some of us have quite a bit of residual hearing and can talk to our mom on the phone but would rather sign to her if she could sign. It is a spectrum. Deaf people have varying levels of residual hearing. What makes us Deaf isn't our level of residual hearing but rather our choice to be a part of the Deaf Community.
We do not need to add the word "culturally" to the uppercase word "Deaf. The reality is there are many varying degrees of residual hearing amongst culturally Deaf people. From "profoundly" deaf, to hard of hearing. Some see no light at all, but many can see "quite a bit" especially with glasses. You could even argue that some people with "normal" hearing are culturally Deaf by virtue of having Deaf parents and having grown up in the Deaf community.
I've even visited a charter school where hearing children were taught alongside Deaf children by Deaf instructors using ASL. In other words Deaf "good-byes" tend to take a long time. One of the reasons Deaf people sometimes prefer to hang out in the kitchen is because the lighting is better. While most parents, educators, and administrators agree that it is good to educate a child in the least restrictive environment the question becomes: What education environment is "least restrictive" for a Deaf child? A residential school for the Deaf, a local school with an interpreter, a day program, an inclusive charter school, or some other education environment.

Hearing administrators often feel that mainstreaming Deaf students into public schools provides "the least restrictive environment" but members of the U. Deaf Community generally consider residential Deaf schools to be the least restrictive environment. Many people in Canada also use ASL. There are several signing systems designed to portray English on the hands. Also sometimes called "Pathological Model.
The NAD is the world's oldest Deaf advocacy organization. A comical reference to Hearing people who don't have ties to the Deaf World. Offered insurance as well as fraternal and community service activities for Deaf people. NMM : Non-manual markers: Non-manual markers are facial expressions and body movements. Non-manual markers are used to inflect signs. That means to change, influence, or emphasize the meaning of a sign or signed phrase. The NTD is a touring theater group composed of Deaf and hearing actors who entertain audiences worldwide through music, sign language, and the spoken word.
Now referred to as "contact signing. One way to describe it is as a "middle ground" between artificially invented signed English systems and ASL. This is a type of interpreter certification. This refers to the ability to understand and voice what is being signed. An invented sign system intended to represent English with the intent to assist deaf children in the acquisition of English.
AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE
Self-exclusion : There are many physically-deaf or hard-of-hearing people who are not a part of the Deaf Community. In the Deaf World "simcom" refers to the attempt to communicate via signing and voicing at the same time. Signing and voicing at the same time is frowned upon by many Deaf academics and Deaf community leaders since the signed message tends to suffer have less fidelity. SK : Stop Keying. It is was used to end a TTY teletype conversation. It indicates that you are going to "hang up" or terminate the conversation.
SKSK a double SK is a response by the other person that he acknowledges that you are ending the conversation and that he or she is quitting too. People on SSI receive regular checks from the government to help pay for basic living expenses. Even if we became fully able to physically "hear" we would not leave our Deaf spouse, quit our Deaf-friendly job, stop attending out Deaf socials, nor stop using sign language as our main mode of communication.
For many of us, magically or medically receiving the ability to "hear" would not instantly grant us the edibility to use spoken English. TC : Total Communication. TC is a philosophy of Deaf Education that advocates using signing, voicing, writing, and other methods of communication. Unfortunately TC often becomes simply an implementation of "simcome" voicing and signing simultaneously. Instant Messaging via text and video has made TTYs largely extinct.
A communication assistant CA answers a call from either a Deaf person or a Hearing person and then dials the number of the other person and then relays information back and forth between the two people. Those who view being deaf as a physical ailment or pathological condition that needs to be cured or fixed subscribe to the pathological view of deafness. The term "pathology" in general refers to the study of disease. The pathological view is typically held by people in the medical profession. Culturally Deaf people don't consider ourselves to have a disease or problem that must be cured in order to have a good life.
I took a sign class with me to visit a Deaf party. Some of my students sat with me in the Deaf circle. I decided to ask if any of my friends would like to become "hearing. My students were shocked. I explained in class the next day that Deaf people do not consider our condition pathological. To us, our deafness Deafhood is cultural. This is an important government agency because it helps provide training and employment assistance to many Deaf people. Others engage in "selective voicing. Also the children get used to the Deaf voice and can understand it just fine.
Deaf are much less likely to voice to a hearing stranger. We don't tend to voice when we are talking with other Deaf skilled signers. Another reason is we can't use voicing and ASL grammar at the same time. VP : Video phone. VRS : Video Relay service. In the Deaf world the hearing children of Deaf parents are generally well accepted and considered to make good interpreters because of their familiarity with ASL and Deaf Culture.
