How can parents and teachers most effectively support the language development and academic success of deaf and hard-of-hearing children? Will using sign language interfere with learning spoken language? Should deaf children be placed in classrooms with hearing children? Are traditional methods of teaching subjects such as reading and math to hearing children appropriate for deaf learners? As many parents and teachers will attest, questions like these have no easy answers, and it can be difficult for caring adults to separate science from politics and fact from opinion in order to make informed decisions about how to help deaf children learn.

In this invaluable guide, renowned authorities Marc Marschark and Peter Hauser highlight important new advances in scientific and educational research that can help parents and teachers of students with significant hearing loss. The authors stress that deaf children have strengths and needs that are sometimes very different from those who can hear. Consequently, if deaf students are to have full academic access and optimal educational outcomes, it is essential that parents and teachers learn to recognize these differences and adjust their teaching methods to them. Marschark and Hauser explain how the fruits of research conducted over the last several years can markedly improve educational practices at home and in the classroom, and they offer innovative strategies that parents and teachers can use to promote learning in their children. The result is a lively, accessible volume that sheds light on what it means to be a deaf learner and that provides a wealth of advice on how we can best support their language development, social skills, and academic success.

About the Author:


Marc Marschark is a Professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, where he is Director of the Center for Education Research Partnerships. He has written or edited over 20 books and published over 100 articles and chapters. His current research focuses on relations of language and learning by deaf children and adults in formal and informal educational settings.

Peter C. Hauser is an Associate Professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf. A deaf clinical neuropsychologist, he is the director of the Deaf Studies Laboratory (DSL) where he supervises deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing students who obtain hands-on experience developing, running, and analyzing experimental psychological studies.

Review:


"After reading this book, parents who may be feeling inadequate about their parenting skills or fearful about providing a good education for their deaf or hard-of-hearing child should be more at ease, and teachers will gain insight into the complexities involved in deaf education and be better equipped to teach these children." - Library Journal


"Using common terminology and drawing upon years of clinical experience, the authors dispel a number of myths regarding what is "best" or "impractical" for the education of deaf children. Rather, they offer basic guidelines for parents and teachers who live and work with these children on a day-to-day basis.The authors also present specific recommendations for academic instruction in the general classroom for teachers and families of deaf children. Summing Up: Highly recommended. General readers and professionals." -- J. D. Neal, University of Central Missouri


"How Deaf Children Learn represents an excellent beginning step in understanding deaf
children, their learning, and most beneficial educational situations. Despite its specificity,
the book can have multiple uses within the psychological community-- primarily as an
introduction for parents who are a clinician's clients, for students in teacher education
programs, for teachers of general education as well as special education, and within special
education programs. Quick, eminently readable, and realistic, it is a book from which
readers will absorb a great deal of valuable information. As a professional in the field of
special education, I wish there were a book like this covering each disability!" -- Cynthia C. Siebel, PsycCRITIQUES
