This informative and engaging program will provide insight into the circumstances and culture of the deaf and hard of hearing community with the goal of deepening participants’ understanding of the language, communication and legal needs of culturally deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing clients. Attitudinal barriers, ableist and audist assumptions and their impact upon the life of a client will be examined. The various models of disability and deafness as well as issues of terminology will also be explored. This program will give legal service providers guidance on how to provide barrier free legal services to deaf and hard of hearing clients, focusing on those whose language is a signed language.

This program is a joint presentation of the Canadian Hearing Society, Ontario Bar Association and ARCH Disability Law Center.
