Social Challenges For Deaf Individuals

Social Challenges For Deaf Individuals

This is a topic I’ve always wanted to talk about, but few people hardly address it.

Deaf people often struggle with social challenges, emotional detachment and isolation. In the worst cases, the lack of connection may lead to a dark path of addiction, bad habits and depression.

Some classic examples involve social relationships, theater, and sports -- especially those that require focused teamwork.

This begs the question: what can we do to get deaf people involved more fully, increasing our quality of life and lessening feelings of isolation?
