Comunidad y cultura sorda


I believe the community has gained achievements from frequent contact with one another, access and sharing of information, collaboration, agreement, and working together toward goals. The Deaf community also has always worked as a team, with both Deaf and hearing persons. (Teresa, leader) Despite ubiquitous barriers, the Deaf community in Uruguay has mobilized to gain greater access to majority society and as a result has created significant programs, policies, and laws for deaf persons in the Latin American and the Caribbean region.
