This article posits that while the inclusion of Deaf people in the Convention provides opportunities for potential benefit, it also obscures some crucial differences between Deaf people and persons with disabilities. To highlight these differences, the concept of Sign Language Peoples (SLPs) is used throughout the text. The SLP concept and the ideas, which it embodies, are beginning to gain acceptance following its emergence in Deaf Studies literature.
