Summary: Dr. Paddy Ladd explains how he came to coin the term “Deafhood” in response to Joey Baer’s question.

PS. Dr. Ladd is from the United Kingdom and uses British Sign Language. However, for this video targeted for American Deaf citizens, he respectfully uses American Sign Language and does it well to express his information. Amazing!
