Szarkowski, Amy; Brice, Patrick J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Hearing parents of deaf and hard-of-hearing children face unique challenges and stressors, the understanding of which has been the focus of numerous studies; yet, relatively little is known about their positive experiences.

Johnston, Trevor – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
Measures of lexical frequency presuppose the existence of corpora, but true machine-readable corpora of sign languages (SLs) are only now being created. Lexical frequency ratings for SLs are needed because there has been a heavy reliance on the interpretation of results of psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experiments in the SL research…

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…

Fernandes, Jane K.; Myers, Shirley Shultz – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2010
Joining scholars signaling the need for new directions in Deaf Studies, the authors recommend a more expansive, nuanced, and interdisciplinary approach that encompasses the many ways deaf people live today. Rather than destroy Deaf culture, this approach is the only realistic way to allow it and Deaf Studies to survive. Deaf Studies today…

In this article, we will describe the development of an assessment instrument for Sign Language of the Netherlands (SLN) for deaf children in bilingual education programs.

Hermans, Daan; Knoors, Harry; Ormel, Ellen; Verhoeven, Ludo – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2008
The acquisition of reading vocabulary is one of the major challenges for deaf children in bilingual education programs. Deaf children have to acquire a written lexicon that can effectively be used in reading. In this paper, we present a developmental model that describes reading vocabulary acquisition of deaf children in bilingual education…

Haug, Tobias; Mann, Wolfgang – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2008
Given the current lack of appropriate assessment tools for measuring deaf children's sign language skills, many test developers have used existing tests of other sign languages as templates to measure the sign language used by deaf people in their country. This article discusses factors that may influence the adaptation of assessment tests from…

Berent, Gerald P.; Kelly, Ronald R.; Aldersley, Stephen; Schmitz, Kathryn L.; Khalsa, Baldev Kaur; Panara, John; Keenan, Susan – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2007
Focus-on-form English teaching methods are designed to facilitate second-language learners' noticing of target language input, where "noticing" is an acquisitional prerequisite for the comprehension, processing, and eventual integration of new grammatical knowledge. While primarily designed for teaching hearing second-language learners, many…

Grimes, Marian; Thoutenhoofd, Ernst D.; Byrne, Delma – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2007
In this article we address "language approach" data as a key variable in quantitative, large-scale research on educational achievement, focusing on our work for the Achievements of Deaf Pupils in Scotland (ADPS) project. The complexity of approaches is addressed, with a particular focus on a "no-exclusion" model of service. In…

Knoors, Harr – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2007
In 1999, Mary Brennan wrote "By recognising the child as, in effect, a "little linguist" we are also recognising the power and effectiveness of the child's linguistic capacity" (Brennan, 1999). The recognition of the power and effectiveness of deaf children's linguistic capacity needs to be taken a step further. Focus should be…

Schick, Brenda; Williams, Kevin; Kupermintz, Haggai – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2006
For many deaf and hard-of-hearing students, access to the general education curriculum is provided, in part, by using the services of an educational interpreter. Even with a highly qualified interpreter, full access to the content and social life in a hearing classroom can be challenging, and there are many aspects of the educational placement…
