Deaf Children

Deaf Children: Developmental Perspectives aims to identify new areas of research, evaluation, and application related to deafness. The book discusses the development of deaf children; the methodological issues in research with deaf children; and the structural properties of American sign language. The text also describes the acquisition of signed and spoken language; speculations concerning deafness and learning to read; future prospects in language and communication for the congenitally deaf. The role of vision in language acquisition by deaf children; research and clinical issues on impulse control in deaf children; and the effects of deafness on childhood development are also considered. The book further tackles the education implications of research and theory with the deaf; developmental perspectives on the experiential deficiencies of deaf children; and the development of the deaf individual and the deaf community. Scholars interested in more general issues within disciplines such as sociology, developmental psychology, linguistics, psycholinguistics, experimental psychology, communication, clinical psychology, psychiatry, and education will find the text invaluable.

EVERYONE HERE SPOKE SIGN LANGUAGE

From the seventeenth century to the early years of the twentieth, the population of Martha’s Vineyard manifested an extremely high rate of profound hereditary deafness. In stark contrast to the experience of most deaf people in our own society, the Vineyarders who were born deaf were so thoroughly integrated into the daily life of the community that they were not seen—and did not see themselves—as handicapped or as a group apart. Deaf people were included in all aspects of life, such as town politics, jobs, church affairs, and social life. How was this possible? On the Vineyard, hearing and deaf islanders alike grew up speaking sign language. This unique sociolinguistic adaptation meant that the usual barriers to communication between the hearing and the deaf, which so isolate many deaf people today, did not exist.

Psychotherapy With Deaf and Hard of Hearing Persons

In this expanded and thoroughly updated second edition, Michael A. Harvey elaborates his pioneering biopsychosocial model of the effective assessment and treatment of deaf and hard-of-hearing clients in individual and family therapy. Taking a broad ecological perspective, he examines the influences of larger networks on the individual and vice versa, and illuminates the overt and covert conflicts among family members, school and vocational rehabilitation personnel, and friends that often exacerbate problems. The spiritual issues relevant to those who have experienced any kind of loss receive special attention in the new edition, as do the daily hurtful exchanges in the lives of the deaf he sums up as "ordinary evil." Throughout the reader-friendly text, theoretical description is balanced with practical advice; points are vividly illustrated with extended verbatim transcripts from actual therapy sessions and with exchanges in the author's question-and-answer column in the journal, Hearing Loss: Self-Help for the Hard of Hearing. Psychotherapy With Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Persons, Second Edition, is essential reading for all mental health professionals who see even occasional clients whose lives have been affected by hearing loss in themselves or in family members.

"Brueggemann's assault upon this long-standing rhetorical conceit is both erudite and personal; she writes both as a scholar and as a hard-of-hearing woman. In this broadly based study, she presents a profound analysis and understanding of rhetorical tradition's descendent disciplines that continue to limit deaf people, such as audiology and speech/language pathology.

Mother Father Deaf

“Mother father deaf” is the phrase commonly used within the Deaf community to refer to hearing children of deaf parents. These children grow up between two cultures, the Hearing and the Deaf, forever balancing the worlds of sound and silence. Paul Preston, one of these children, takes us to the place where Deaf and Hearing cultures meet, where families like his own embody the conflicts and resolutions of two often opposing world views. Based on 150 interviews with adult hearing children of deaf parents throughout the United States, Mother Father Deaf examines the process of assimilation and cultural affiliation among a population whose lives incorporate the paradox of being culturally “Deaf” yet functionally hearing. It is rich in anecdote and analysis, remarkable for its insights into a family life normally closed to outsiders.

Context  Cognition  and Deafness

This sharply focused volume on the cognitive development of deaf children calls upon experts in anthropology, psychology, linguistics, basic visual sensory processes, education, cognition, and neurophysiology to share complementary observations. William C. Stokoe's "Deafness, Cognition, and Language" leads fluidly into Jeffery P. Braden's analysis of clinical assessments of deaf people's cognitive abilities. Margaret Wilson expands on the impact of sign language expertise on visual perception. The study and analysis of Italian deaf preschoolers with hearing families presented by Elena Pizzuto, Barbara Ardito, Maria Cristina Caselli, and Virginia Volterra chronicles fascinating insights on the children's cognition and language development. Context, Cognition, and Deafness also shows that theory can intersect practice, as displayed by editor Marschark and Jennifer Lukomski in their research on literacy, cognition, and education. Amy R. Lederberg and Patricia E. Spencer have combined sequential designs in their study of vocabulary learning. Ethan Remmel, Jeffrey Bettger, and Amy Weinberg explore the theory of mind development. The emotional development of deaf children also receives detailed consideration by Colin D. Gray, Judith A. Hosie, Phil A. Russell, and Ellen A. Ormel. Kathryn P. Meadow-Orlans delineates her perspective on the coming of age of deaf children in relation to their education and development. Marschark concludes with insightful impressions on the future of theory and application, an appropriate close to this exceptional, coherent volume.
