Walden House is a 365-day-a-year comprehensive program for Deaf Children. More than 50% of the staff is Deaf; ASL is considered the dominant language, and a central goal for all students is the establishment of a strong cultural and personal identity as a Deaf person. This paper will explore how providing this culturally affirmative Deaf environment impacts upon all aspects of programming.
