The primary source is:
Gallaudet, T.H. 1848. On the Natural Language of Signs; and Its Value and Uses in the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb. American Annals of the Deaf, vol. 1, no. 2, pp. 7993. Reprinted in: American Annals of the Deaf, vol. 142, no. 3, pp. 17. This source described the very first education institute for deaf and dumb people as sign language has become a social issue in nineteenth century. As the development of sign language, it constructs the normalcy between deaf people and speaking people. It established that the language was no longer a power or product of speaking people. Prevail the challenge of fairness and right to speak by these disables in a way.
