Oftentimes a child's deafness can be as disconcerting to the uninformed adult as it is debilitating to the deaf child. Yet parents, students, and teachers who try to inform themselves find doing so difficult: the issues are emotional and too often have been the subject of clashes among professional and lay people. In this comprehensive study, Professor Meadow provides a rational, informed, and balanced approach. Individual chapters survey the central work done on the linguistic, cognitive, social, and psychological effects of profound deafness in children and offer practical discussions with abundant concrete examples. The result is a book that provides a context for understanding research in childhood deafness and ways to apply its findings. Of particular interest to professionals who work with deaf children, the concluding chapter analyzes unresolved matters of policy. These include: oral-only versus oral-visual communication; recommended forms of visual communication; residential verses day school education; the benefits and liabilities of mainstreaming; the treatment of minority, multiply handicapped, and gifted deaf children; and the role of deaf adults in the socialization of deaf children.
