Abstract

Based on Epstein's model of self-theory, the importance of providing deaf children with opportunities to develop a solid deaf identity at an early age is discussed. Seven categories of possible identities for deaf people are outlined and the stages of developing a bicultural awareness presented. Case studies detailing these stages are discussed.
