We are carrying out interviews based on three research questions:

1.      1. What are some of the key thoughts and feelings that people have about Deaf people in relation to genetics?

2.     2. Is it ethical for scientists to carry out genetic research on deaf genes without agreement and consultation with the Deaf community, which considers itself as a collective cultural-linguistic minority community?

3.     3. What are the ethical and policy impacts of genetic practices on other groups of people, for example, disabled people?
