Why Deaf Children Need ASL

It may not surprise you to learn that more than 90% of deaf and hard of hearing children are born to parents who can hear. But it may surprise you to learn that up to 88% of those parents will never learn sign language – a decision that will have a huge impact on the rest of their child’s life.
