Davenport, Carrie A.; Watson, Martreece; Cannon, Joanna E. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2019
A systematic review explored the evidence base of literacy intervention studies that examined the early years of schooling (preschool through first grade) of participants who were d/Deaf or hard of hearing (d/Dhh). Specific inclusion criteria were used to select single-case design (SCD) studies published in peer-reviewed journals between 2004 and…

Domínguez, Ana-Belén; Alegría, Jesús; Carrillo, María-Soledad; González, Virginia – American Annals of the Deaf, 2019
The authors examined the relationship between cochlear implants (CIs) and reading acquisition and attempted to determine the part played by phonological and orthographic resources in this task. Four groups of Spanish-speaking deaf children were examined: children with either early- or late-implanted CIs, and children without CIs who had either…

Bedoin, Diane – American Annals of the Deaf, 2019
Deaf education professionals are regularly challenged by the linguistic and cultural diversity of deaf youth. The present article focuses on how young deaf people residing in France who are migrants or the children of migrants define themselves, and how parents and professionals perceive their linguistic and cultural diversity. The theoretical…

Urbani, Jacquelyn M. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2019
Deaf and hard of hearing (d/Dhh) children frequently have delayed language; yet limited research exists on interventions to facilitate linguistic development in the classroom (Fung, Chow, & McBride-Chang, 2005). Dialogic reading is an evidence-based practice that has resulted in significantly improved language skills (Towson, Fettig, Fleury,…

Guan, Connie Qun; Wang, Ye – American Annals of the Deaf, 2017
Comparing deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) children with their hearing peers in learning Chinese, the study tested the lexical quality hypothesis (Perfetti, 1992, 2007), which asserts the importance of building orthographic, phonological, and semantic connections in high-quality lexical representations. DHH children and hearing peers matched on…

Nielsen, Diane Corcoran; Luetke, Barbara; McLean, Meigan; Stryker, Deborah – American Annals of the Deaf, 2016
Research suggests that English-language proficiency is critical if students who are deaf or hard of hearing (D/HH) are to read as their hearing peers. One explanation for the traditionally reported reading achievement plateau when students are D/HH is the inability to hear insalient English morphology. Signing Exact English can provide visual…

Rodríguez-Santos, José Miguel; Calleja, Marina; García-Orza, Javier; Iza, Mauricio; Damas, Jesús – American Annals of the Deaf, 2014
Deaf Children usually achieve lower scores on numerical tasks than normally hearing peers. Explanations for mathematical disabilities in hearing children are based on quantity representation deficits (Geary, 1994) or on deficits in accessing these representations (Rousselle & Noël, 2008). The present study aimed to verify, by means of symbolic…

Bennett, Jessica G.; Gardner, Ralph, III; Leighner, Ross; Clancy, Shannon; Garner, Joshua – American Annals of the Deaf, 2014
The Effects of the Language for Learning curriculum (Engelmann & Osborne, 1999) on through-the-air (i.e., signed and/or spoken) English skills for students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) were examined by means of a single-subject, concurrent-multiple-probes-across-participants design. Four 11-year-old participants varied in auditory…

Rabinsky, Rebecca J. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2013
A qualitative case study using the deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) push-in model was conducted on the perceptions of 3 itinerant deaf educators and 3 general educators working in 1 school district. Participants worked in pairs of 1 deaf educator and 1 general educator at 3 elementary schools. Open-ended research questions guided the study, which…

Wang, Ye; Spychala, Heather; Harris, Regina S.; Oetting, Tara L. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2013
The study explored the effects of a phonics-based early intervention package on the early reading skills of three preschool students who were d/Deaf or hard of hearing who differed in regard to degree of hearing loss, use of amplification, and communication mode. The 40-week intervention (50-week in one case) was delivered through individual and…

Beal-Alvarez, Jennifer S.; Easterbrooks, Susan R. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2013
The Authors examined classifier production during narrative retells by 10 deaf and hard of hearing students in grades 2-4 at a day school for the deaf following a 6-week intervention of repeated viewings of stories in American Sign Language (ASL) paired with scripted teacher mediation. Classifier production, documented through a…

Weiner, Mary T.; Day, Stefanie J.; Galvan, Dennis – American Annals of the Deaf, 2013
Student perspectives reflect school climate. The study examined perspectives among deaf and hard of hearing students in residential and large day schools regarding bullying, and compared these perspectives with those of a national database of hearing students. The participants were 812 deaf and hard of hearing students in 11 U.S. schools. Data…

Buisson, Gerald J.; Salgo, Jennifer – American Annals of the Deaf, 2012
Postsecondary American Sign Language (ASL) students are capable of teaching short lessons related to sign language and Deaf culture to gifted students in elementary school. College students who work as "interest-area mentors" benefit gifted students while building their own academic discipline and professional skills. In Part 1 of a 2-part series…

Wolbers, Kimberly A.; Dimling, Lisa M.; Lawson, Heather R.; Golos, Debbie B. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2012
The study examined the extent to which a highly qualified interpreter remained parallel with or diverged from the original classroom discourse in her interpreting for a 3rd-grade deaf student in science, social studies, and resource room. The interpreter's signed and verbalized expressions were compared to the class participants' expressions for…

Levrez, Clovis; Bourdin, Beatrice; Le Driant, Barbara; Forgeot d'Arc, Baudouin; Vandromme, Luc – American Annals of the Deaf, 2012
Even when they have good language skills, many children with hearing loss lag several years behind hearing children in the ability to grasp beliefs of others. The researchers sought to determine whether this lag results from difficulty with the verbal demands of tasks or from conceptual delays. The researchers related children's performance on a…
