Effective communication remains one of the biggest barriers for deaf people all over the world. Limited access impacts efficient communications with others or access to essential information and services such as health care, education, and employment. A significant number of deaf students attend schools where the quality of education is poor and deaf adults and seniors often cannot obtain essential healthcare services or meaningful employment all as a result of language barriers.
