  Title Establishing good communication: DCs and deaf patients
Journal JACA Online. 2005 Mar;42(2):Online acccess only p.8-9

Often, the terms "deaf," "hard of hearing," or "hearing impaired" imply defectiveness or disability-something that must be remedied-and/or intellectual abilities not on a par with hearing people. Such descriptors are erroneous. .
