Can deaf people 'see' more than hearing people?
Answer : Deaf people are often more visually clued in than hearing people. Research has shown that Deaf mothers have a way of communicating visually with their babies and children involving much more use of movement and space (hearing mothers tend to play more with speech and sound). However, Deaf people generally have been found to have a higher incidence of sight problems compared with the general population.
