The National Association of the Deaf (NAD, USA) participates in Deaf World Week, initiated by the WFD, annually during the last full week in September to celebrate the culture, heritage, and language unique to deaf people of the world. Dates for Deaf Awareness Week Deaf Awareness Week (DAW) is the last full week (Sunday through Saturday) of September, in commemoration of the first World Congress of the Deaf held that week in 1951. However, Deaf Awareness events can be held at anytime of the year. For example, a school may hold a Deaf Festival in April to provide the students, faculty and staff several months of preparation; or a library may have a Deaf Awareness exhibit in December in honor of the birth of Laurent Clerc (Dec. 26, 1785) and Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet (Dec. 10, 1787). Events Deaf Awareness events range from an exhibit in the corridor of a school to a full week of events scheduled throughout a city. Performing artists, lectures, art exhibits, film festivals, historical exhibits, Deaf Festivals, booths in area shopping malls, deaf awareness programs held in conjunction with sporting events -- these are just a sampling of past events held across the nation. Keep your eyes open for events happening in your community. Objectives To be able to differentiate between misconception and fact about deafness and deaf culture.
