Dr. Paddy Ladd, author of Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood (2003), coined the word Deafhood to describe wholesome ways of being Deaf in spite of medicalized attitudes, discrimination, and oppression. He presented a framework to understand our past, work within the present and plan for the future which Deafhood Foundation works to further. To learn more about his work, please go to Dr. Paddy's Corner.
