Eschenbeck, Heike; Gillé, Vera; Heim-Dreger, Uwe; Schock, Alexandra; Schott, Andrea – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017

Everyday general stressors and more hearing-specific stressors were examined in a hearing-specific modified stress and…

The present study investigated the development of literacy skills of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children in Japan. The three components of literacy, vocabulary, orthographic knowledge, and grammatical knowledge were assessed by using the subtests of the Adaptive Tests for Language Abilities (ATLAN), based on the item response theory developed…

The present study describes the characteristics of students in Grades 3-12 with significant cognitive disabilities (SCD) and known hearing loss. The study analyzed results of a survey of teachers of students with SCD (n = 38,367) who were slated to participate in an alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards in 14 states in the…

Miller, Paul; Kargin, Tevhide; Guldenoglu, Birkan – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2015
The central aim of this study was to clarify whether sign language (SL) nativeness is a significant factor in determining prelingually deaf individuals' reading skills and whether its contribution is modified by the reader's orthographic background. A second aim was to elucidate similarities and differences between native and nonnative signers in…

Miller, Paul; Kargin, Tevhide; Guldenoglu, Birkan; Rathmann, Christian; Kubus, Okan; Hauser, Peter; Spurgeon, Erin – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
This study aims to enhance understanding of the factors underlying variance in the reading comprehension skills of prelingually deaf individuals. Participants were 213 sixth through tenth graders with prelingual deafness recruited from four orthographic backgrounds (Hebrew, Arabic, English, and German) and allocated to three distinct reading…

Wolters, Nina; Knoors, Harry; Cillessen, Antonius H. N.; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
This study focused on the peer and teacher relationships of deaf children and the effects of these relationships on well-being in school during the transition from elementary school to junior high school. Differences due to gender and educational context were also considered. In Study 1, the predictive effects of peer acceptance, popularity, and…

Wolbers, Kimberly A.; Dostal, Hannah M.; Bowers, Lisa M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
Nonstandard grammatical forms are often present in the writing of deaf students that are rarely, if ever, seen in the writing of hearing students. With the implementation of Strategic and Interactive Writing Instruction (SIWI) in previous studies, students have demonstrated significant gains in high-level writing skills (e.g., text structure) but…

Kelly, Ronald R.; Berent, Gerald P. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
This research contrasted deaf and hearing students' interpretive knowledge of English sentences containing numeral quantifier phrases and indefinite noun phrases. A multiple-interpretation picture task methodology was used to assess 305 participants' judgments of the compatibility of sentence meanings with depicted discourse contexts.…

Cawthon, Stephanie W.; Winton, Samantha M.; Garberoglio, Carrie Lou; Gobble, Mark E. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
Students who are deaf or hard of hearing (SDHH) often need accommodations to participate in large-scale standardized assessments. One way to bridge the gap between the language of the test (English) and a student's linguistic background (often including American Sign Language [ASL]) is to present test items in ASL. The specific aim of this project…

Easterbrooks, Susan R.; Huston, Sandra G. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2008
Reading fluency in deaf children whose primary mode of communication is visual, whether English-like or American Sign Language, is difficult to measure since most measures of fluency require a child to read aloud. This article opens the discussion of a new construct, namely, signed reading fluency (i.e., rendering of printed text in a visually…

Wolbers, Kimberly A. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2008
This article reports the findings of balanced and interactive writing instruction used with 16 deaf and hard-of-hearing students. Although the instruction has been used previously, this was the first time it had been modified to suit the specific needs of deaf children and the first time it had been implemented with this subpopulation of students.…

Trezek, Beverly J.; Malmgren, Kimber W. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2005
Research indicates that the acquisition of phonemic awareness and phonic skills is highly correlated with later success in learning to read. Numerous studies support the hypothesis that deaf and hard-of-hearing children are able to utilize alternative systems to develop phonological awareness that are not dependent on the ability to hear sounds or…

Gaustad, Martha Gonter; Kelly, Ronald R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2004
This study extends the findings of Gaustad, Kelly, Payne, and Lylak (2002), which showed that deaf college students and hearing middle school students appeared to have approximately the same morphological knowledge and word segmentation skills. Because the average grade level reading abilities for the two groups of students were also similar,…
