Language has been defined as the means by which experience is symbolized and communicated. In the field of Deaf Education, language has often been recognized as the most vital element in a deaf child's training. The child is taught lipreading and speech, both of which are important in his education. However, in order to understand ideas on the lips through lipreading, and communicate orally through speech, he must first have language. The child learns to receive knowledge through language, and then he begins to express this knowledge again through language. Language then, opens the door to all learning.
