ABOUT THIS BOOK
"The book will be most useful to those doing research in the area of developmental and educational aspects of deafness."

--Hearing Habilitation Quarterly

Educational and Developmental Aspects of Deafness details the ongoing revolution in the education of deaf children. More than 20 researchers contributed their discoveries in anthropology, education, linguistics, psychology, sociology, and other major disciplines, with special concentration upon the education of deaf children.

Divided into two parts on education at home and in school, this incisive book documents breakthroughs such as the public's interest in sign language, the increasing availability of interpreters, the growing perception of deafness as a social condition, not a pathology, and other positive trends. It is unique as the first purely research-based text and reference point for further study of the education of deaf children.

Donald F. Moores and Kathryn P. Meadow-Orlans helped found the Center for Studies in Education and Human Development, one of the largest deafness research groups in the world. The Center is located at Gallaudet University.
