About the Author:
Paul W. Ogden has spent a lifetime exploring what it means to be an effective communicator. He is an educator, author, mentor, scholar, and advocate for the deaf and hard of hearing. Born deaf into a hearing family, Paul is the youngest of four sons, including one who was also born deaf. Paul grew up in the South during the tumultuous years of the Civil Rights movement. As a boy, he met Martin Luther King Jr. in the Ogden home and was old enough to appreciate his father s bravery and compassion when Dunbar Ogden led members of the Little Rock Nine through a white mob to Central High School.
Paul earned a bachelor s degree in mathematics and computers from Antioch College and master s and doctoral degrees in educational psychology and deaf education from the University of Illinois, Champaign Urbana. For more than thirty years, he has served as a professor of Deaf Studies at California State University, Fresno, where he is currently Professor Emeritus. He uses his knowledge and talent to teach students to be advocates for the deaf, serve as a support system for parents, and be a resource for children, families, and other key individuals in the lives of deaf and hard of hearing children. Paul was named Outstanding Professor of the Year at Fresno State and placed second overall for the same award for the California State University system comprised of 23 campuses.
Among his major publications are The Silent Garden: Understanding Your Hearing Impaired Child; Chelsea: The Story of a Signal Dog; The Silent Garden: Raising Your Deaf Child, and El Jardin Silencioso: Criando a Su Hijo Sordo, a Spanish translation of the first five chapters of The Silent Garden. Gallaudet University Press lists both volumes of The Silent Garden as classics. Among Paul s recent honors is the Lifetime Achievement Award, conferred in 2012 at the annual conference of California Educators of the Deaf.
