About the Exhibition

Language, Culture, Communities: 200 Years of Impact by the American School for the Deaf

April 27 - October 7, 2017 

The American School for the Deaf established the first permanent school for the deaf in the United States.  It created a new standardized language- American Sign Language- resulting in a deaf community and culture that continues to advance equality.  As a leader in developing educational methods and embracing technology for people who are deaf, ASD has impacted personal lives and American culture, and has formed local, national, and global connections between deaf, hard of hearing, and hearing communities.

Visitors to this exhibit will come away with the understanding that ASD has and continues to transform and enrich the lives of deaf and hard of hearing individuals while forming connections between the deaf and hearing communities.  They will understand the role that ASD played in shaping American culture through its influence on racial integration, special education, technological innovation, and through its establishment of American Sign Language as a major world language.  The exhibit will allow visitors to gain a greater understanding of the challenges and successes of people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

This exhibit will be showcased for six months from April through October 2017.  The promotional web page for Language, Culture, Communities: 200 Years of Impact by the American School for the Deaf can be viewed at https://chs.org/asd.
