Life in sign language

In Armenia, individuals with hearing impairments face nuanced obstacles, ranging from societal acceptance to education and employment. Many don’t attend school at all, and others are educated in public schools without special resources. Amid all this, an educational center for hearing-impaired children has been operating in Yerevan since 1959 and currently offers bilingual education to 112 students. Here, they learn the Armenian language, sign language, and communication skills. However, challenges for these children often arise post-graduation, whether in pursuing higher education, seeking employment, or simply navigating daily life.
