Matthijs, Liesbeth; Hardonk, Stefan; Sermijn, Jasmina; Van Puyvelde, Martine; Leigh, Greg; Van Herreweghe, Mieke; Loots, Gerrit – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Traditional research examining the communicational choices made by families with deaf children tends to emanate from the premise that families engage with either of the two grand discourses on deafness (i.e., the medical or cultural-linguistic perspective). This study investigated hearing mother's engagement with the educational options for their…

Tucci, Stacey L.; Easterbrooks, Susan R.; Lederberg, Amy R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Data from a growing number of research studies indicate that children with hearing loss are delayed in Theory of Mind (ToM) development when compared to their typically developing, hearing peers. While other researchers have studied the developmental trajectories of ToM in school-age students who are deaf, a limited number have addressed the need…

The main purpose of the current investigation was to determine whether the Vocal Development Landmarks Interview-Experimental Version (VDLI-E) was sensitive to variation in the vocal development of infants and toddlers who are hard of hearing. The VDLI-E is an interactive parent interview that uses audio samples of authentic infant vocalizations…

Miller, Elizabeth M.; Lederberg, Amy R.; Easterbrooks, Susan R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
The goal of this study was to explore the development of spoken phonological awareness for deaf and hard-of-hearing children (DHH) with functional hearing (i.e., the ability to access spoken language through hearing). Teachers explicitly taught five preschoolers the phonological awareness skills of syllable segmentation, initial phoneme isolation,…

Pagliaro, Claudia M.; Kritzer, Karen L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
Over decades and across grade levels, deaf/hard-of-hearing (d/hh) student performance in mathematics has shown a gap in achievement. It is unclear, however, exactly when this gap begins to emerge and in what areas. This study describes preschool d/hh children's knowledge of early mathematics concepts. Both standardized and nonstandardized measures…

Kritzer, Karen L.; Pagliaro, Claudia M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
The Building Math Readiness in Young Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing Children: Parents as Partners (MRPP) Project works with parents to increase the understanding of foundational mathematics concepts in their preschool deaf/hard-of-hearing (d/hh) children in preparation for formal mathematics education. A multiple-case/single-unit case study incorporating…

Most, Tova; Ingber, Sara; Heled-Ariam, Einat – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
The study focused on social competence (SC) and perceived sense of loneliness of preschool children with hearing loss (HL) in group inclusion (GI, a small group of children with HL is integrated in a standard classroom) and individual inclusion (II, each child with HL is individually integrated into a standard classroom). The relations between…

Beal-Alvarez, Jennifer S.; Lederberg, Amy R.; Easterbrooks, Susan R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
We examined acquisition of grapheme-phoneme correspondences by 4 deaf and hard-of-hearing preschoolers using instruction from a curriculum designed specifically for this population supplemented by Visual Phonics. Learning was documented through a multiple baseline across content design as well as descriptive analyses. Preschoolers who used sign…

Haug, Tobias – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2011
There is a current need for reliable and valid test instruments in different countries in order to monitor deaf children's sign language acquisition. However, very few tests are commercially available that offer strong evidence for their psychometric properties. A German Sign Language (DGS) test focusing on linguistic structures that are acquired…

Lederberg, Amy R.; Spencer, Patricia E. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
Deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children's ability to rapidly learn novel words through direct reference and through novel mapping (i.e., inferring that a novel word refers to a novel object) was examined. Ninety-eight DHH children, ranging from 27 to 82 months old, drawn from 12 schools in five states participated. In two tasks that differed in…

Rinaldi, Pasquale; Caselli, Cristina – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2009
We evaluated language development in deaf Italian preschoolers with hearing parents, taking into account the duration of formal language experience (i.e., the time elapsed since wearing a hearing aid and beginning language education) and different methods of language education. Twenty deaf children were matched with 20 hearing children for age and…

DeLuzio, Joanne; Girolametto, Luigi – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2006
This exploratory study examined the attention-gaining and attention-regaining strategies used by a preschool educator who is Deaf during child-directed play. Four children (2 with typical hearing and 2 with severe-to-profound hearing loss) were videotaped interacting with the educator in two different play contexts. The educator used four…

Weisel, Amatzia; Most, Tova; Efron, Clara – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2005
This study examined strategies for initiating social interactions with peers, among 4 children with hearing impairment, aged 33 to 36 months, attending a special early education center or a regular kindergarten. The study investigated initiation type (related to partner's hearing status) and rates of initiation success/failure vis-a-vis hearing…
