Manuel Guillermo Sanabria Lopez's curator insight, August 16, 3:19 PM
In this article you can find interesting insights about the difficulties deaf and hard of hearing may encounter in their lives. It is published by the Gallaudet university, the main university in the United States created for deaf people education. Being a specialised university, we have to admit they are very sensitive about the deaf culture and their difficulties they encounter to live with the hearing culture.

In my opinion, this University is one of the most impressive because there has never been a University that mainly pertains to people who are deaf and hard of hearing. It makes the United States a little more accepting and teaches people who are not informed about the deaf and hard of hearing world.
