Introduction / History

It is said that Deaf teenagers and children in Iran are well educated. Deaf students can go to college. All schools use the oral way. There are said to be a few hundred schools for the Deaf in Iran.

There is a National Deaf Day once a year in Iran. Persian Sign Language is mainly used but there is a second main language used and that is called Teahouse Sign Language. There is much cued speech which helps with the problems of lip reading by making sounds of the language clearly noticeable.

In Iran there are several organizations for the Deaf including sports associations and government aided ones. Sign language is used for the news on television.

Most Iranians are Shia Muslims.


Prayer Points

* Pray that God gives the Deaf in Iran dreams and visions leading them to Salvation.
* Pray that they realize Jesus Christ loves the Deaf and so come to Him.
