Inside Deaf Culture was created as a resource for those interested in learning about the d/Deaf world, community, and culture.
Our goal is twofold: Firstly, to provide resources for beginners including those who are recently deafened, learning to sign, or just want to learn more about the community.
Secondly, to assist those at the other end of the age spectrum that have suffered hearing damage over a prolonged period in the workplace, due to excessive decibel levels (prior to the introduction of absolutely essential legislation that should have been in place many decades earlier...). This is often referred to as industrial deafness and, sadly, is an industrial disease that should never have occured.
