One of many barriers to successful postsecondary outcomes for deaf people is the impact of negative attitudes and biases. Deaf people encounter negative attitudes and biases across many settings. This, along with “the historical trend of low expectations” have served as a persistent barrier to advancement in both school and the workplace. To ensure people interacting with deaf individuals don’t create additional barriers or inadvertently maintain barriers created by others, it is important to examine oneself and how one views deaf people. Understanding that there are factors pervasive across all levels of the system that inhibit deaf people from reaching their full potential can guide us to ensure equitable opportunity for deaf success — ultimately benefiting society as a whole.
