Today is Human Rights Day 2018. It is Deaf babies’ human right to have full access to sign language from birth.
Unfortunately, 3 out of 4 Deaf babies do not have full access to sign language from birth and 98% of Deaf children do not have access to education in sign language. This is a gross violation of Deaf babies and children’s human rights.
