Summary: Originally published in 1930, The Deaf Mute Howls challenged the prevailing practice of teaching deaf children to speak and read lips while prohibiting the use of sign language.

The Deaf Mute Howls charts the ambiguous attitudes of deaf pe ...show moreople toward themselves at this time. Ballin himself makes matter-of-fact use of terms now considered disparaging, such as ''deaf-mute'', and he frequently rues the ''atrophying'' of the parts of his brain necessary for language acquisition.
