Deafness can be viewed as a medical problem—a disorder for physicians to treat with pills and surgery. It can also be regarded as a social condition, the proper object of attention from social scientists-anthropologists, ethologists, psychologists, sociologists, and from administrators and practitioners of social programs-special education and rehabilitation. The perspective from which deafness is considered is important because the way we think about it affects our approach to deaf people. We may treat them either as people who are ill or as people who differ from the general populace. The latter is the position adopted by this paper and by the majority of early deafened people.
