Abstract


Deafness, legal rights, language, teaching and learning are topics strictly related to deaf life and wellbeing.
This article aims to discuss the history of deafness and some teaching proposals using Brazil and a
Brazilian Institute of Deaf Education in a study case. On that purpose we analyzed didactic and scientific
materials and their influence on Brazilian deaf education. Thus, we focused on the deaf speech also
approaching pathology and epistemology perspectives present in the narratives of the institute curriculum,
questioning these representations. Historical aspects in the educational, pathological and epistemological
approaches in Brazil are also reported including different language teaching perspectives including
bimodalist, total communication and bilingualism. Our study observed the importance of deaf political
movement and their struggle to guarantee the right for a good and long-awaited dreamed bilingual
education
