Deaf Employment – Progress?

JG Kyle

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Contribution (Conference Proceeding)


    In this paper, the situation of Deaf people in employment is considered. Although we seem to have made considerable progress in this area in the last 50 years in the UK, the views of Deaf people are not always consistent with this progress. Despite provision of interpreters and technical assistance, Deaf people do not always consider that their aspirations can be realised. Deaf people remain in poorer jobs with reduced prospects for advancement. Whether one can be optimistic or pessimistic as to the future impact of current initiatives, is a matter of choice but the data implies that we are not yet tackling the root cause of the exclusion – the limited extent of BSL use in society.
