  5. Culture Note page 116- Residential Schools
    For many years, state supported residential "schools for the deaf" have served as places where large numbers of Deaf children, including those from hearing families, become socialized into the cultural group. Many children learn ASL at school's such as these rather than at home. Until the 1960's, because of distance and cost, children often had to stay at the school's on weekends and visited their parents' homes only on holiday or during summers. Some children were reluctant to leave the school. When their families did not use sign language. the attraction of the school, with its large number of signers, was often stronger.

  24. Culture Note page 160 TTY
    A TTY (telecommunication device for the Deaf, a TDD, or teletypewriter) is a device for typing over telephone lines. Anyone having a TTY can call another party who has TTY. If one of the parties does not have a TTY, there are rely services which one can call via voice or TTY. The relay service will call the other party and relay the conversation between parties as in a normal conversation. 

    In recent years, more and more Deaf people have been using text pagers with small keyboards for communicating with each other electronically. You may see a Deaf person typing frantically, using his or her thumbs, on one of these pagers. Deaf people are also making heavy use of email.
