Abstract/Excerpt/Description

[Chapter Abstract] Correctional settings often present unique challenges for the Deaf inmate. The need for accommodations to successfully and safely navigate these systems may not be provided or be inefficient. As such, the Deaf inmate may not have the same access to technology, activities, and social interactions as their hearing peers. Deaf inmates are also likely to be seen as victims by other inmates and face physical danger. In addition, Deaf inmates may be isolated due to a lack of communication with other inmates and staff.
