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…

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…
