Who are Deaf People?
The hearing loss population consists of two groups. One is Deaf and the other is Hard-of-Hearing. Hearing loss is defined by a medical scale. Culture or background can also define a person with hearing loss as either Deaf or Hard-of-Hearing. If the person is proud of Deaf culture, he/she is Deaf. And if the person prefers spoken language to Sign Language, he/she is Hard of Hearing. It depends on the person. It is not clear how many people belong to each group but it is true that these are big communities.
Sometimes you might meet some Deaf people who can't use Sign Language fluently because of their background. However they are Deaf because they think of themselves as Deaf. Deaf is a cultural and social definition.
