This 2:23-minute clip is another part of Ella Mae Lentz’s presentation at the NAD conference during the summer of 2006, Understanding Deafhood: Our Language (part 2 of 4). This clip re-frames the Crab Theory that has been used to describe how Deaf people pull “achieving” Deaf people down. Framing is how we use language to set up others’ thinking about a particular thing, in this case, about Deaf people’s behaviors. Enjoy this challenge to our thinking! FYI: The book mentioned in this clip is “Understanding Deaf Culture: In Search of Deafhood” by Dr. Paddy Ladd (2003).
