How does architecture affect how deaf and hearing students interact in school? Also, what makes a place “Deaf Space”? Further, how can staff, faculty, and parents at a school all decide how to design the school? In response, author Charlene Johnson used Community Based Participatory Research to answer these questions. Meanwhile, she used qualitative research methods with staff, faculty and parents. All participants were at the Albuquerque Sign Language Academy.
