Young, Alys; Ferguson-Coleman, Emma; Wright, Barry; Le Couteur, Ann – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
The co-occurrence of childhood deafness and autism raises complex challenges for diagnosis and family support. In this article, we explore with hearing and Deaf parents their observations of the interaction between deafness and autism and identify how the intersections of deafness and autism are conceptualized in everyday life. Eight parents…

Marschark, Marc; Machmer, Elizabeth; Spencer, Linda J.; Borgna, Georgianna; Durkin, Andreana; Convertino, Carol – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Various studies have examined psychosocial functioning and language abilities among deaf children with and without cochlear implants (CIs). Few, however, have explored how relations among those abilities might change with age and setting. Most relevant studies also have failed to consider that psychosocial functioning among both CI users and…

Beal-Alvarez, Jennifer S.; Figueroa, Daileen M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Two key areas of language development include semantic and phonological knowledge. Semantic knowledge relates to word and concept knowledge. Phonological knowledge relates to how language parameters combine to create meaning. We investigated signing deaf adults' and children's semantic and phonological sign generation via one-minute tasks,…

Faes, Jolien; Gillis, Joris; Gillis, Steven – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The frequency of occurrence of words and sounds has a pervasive influence on typically developing children's language acquisition. For instance, highly frequent words appear earliest in a child's lexicon, and highly frequent phonemes are produced more accurately. This study evaluates (a) whether word frequency influences word accuracy and (b)…

Hoffman, Michael F.; Quittner, Alexandra L.; Cejas, Ivette – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2015
This study compared levels of social competence and language development in 74 young children with hearing loss and 38 hearing peers aged 2.5-5.3 years. This study was the first to examine the relationship between oral language and social competence using a dynamic systems framework in children with and without hearing loss. We hypothesized that,…

Rinaldi, Pasquale; Caselli, Maria Cristina; Di Renzo, Alessio; Gulli, Tiziana; Volterra, Virginia – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2014
Lexical comprehension and production is directly evaluated for the first time in deaf signing children below the age of 3 years. A Picture Naming Task was administered to 8 deaf signing toddlers (aged 2-3 years) who were exposed to Sign Language since birth. Results were compared with data of hearing speaking controls. In both deaf and hearing…

Mounty, Judith L.; Pucci, Concetta T.; Harmon, Kristen C. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2014
A primary tenet underlying American Sign Language/English bilingual education for deaf students is that early access to a visual language, developed in conjunction with language planning principles, provides a foundation for literacy in English. The goal of this study is to obtain an emic perspective on bilingual deaf readers transitioning from…

Guo, Ling-Yu; Spencer, Linda J.; Tomblin, J. Bruce – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
This study investigated the development of tense markers (e.g., past tense -ed) in children with cochlear implants (CIs) over a 3-year span. Nine children who received CIs before 30 months of age participated in this study at three, four, and five years postimplantation. Nine typical 3-, 4-, and 5-year- olds served as control groups. All children…

Musengi, Martin; Ndofirepi, Amasa; Shumba, Almon – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
The study explores the communication challenges faced by teacher trainees in teaching deaf learners and the opportunities that they present. A critical disabilities study approach within the qualitative paradigm was employed to collect interview data from 14 trainee teachers (6 were men and 8 women) and 5 of their specialist mentors (all of them…

Spencer, Linda J.; Guo, Ling-Yu – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
This study provided a yearly record of consonant development for the initial 4 years of cochlear implant (CI) use and established a precedent for using a standardized articulation test, the "Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation--2" (Goldman, R., & Fristoe, M. [2000]. Goldman-Fristoe Test of Articulation--2. Circle Pines, MN: American…

Kanto, Laura; Huttunen, Kerttu; Laakso, Marja-Leena – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
We explored variation in the linguistic environments of hearing children of Deaf parents and how it was associated with their early bilingual language development. For that purpose we followed up the children's "productive vocabulary" (measured with the MCDI; MacArthur Communicative Development Inventory) and "syntactic…

Wang, Jihong; Napier, Jemina – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2013
This study investigated the effects of hearing status and age of signed language acquisition on signed language working memory capacity. Professional Auslan (Australian sign language)/English interpreters (hearing native signers and hearing nonnative signers) and deaf Auslan signers (deaf native signers and deaf nonnative signers) completed an…

VanDam, Mark; Ambrose, Sophie E.; Moeller, Mary Pat – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
Automated analyses of full-day recordings were used to determine whether young children who are hard-of-hearing (HH) received similar levels of exposure to adult words and conversational interactions as age-matched peers with normal-hearing (NH). Differences in adult input between children in this study and in a normative database were considered.…

Cramer-Wolrath, Emelie – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
This case study longitudinally analyzes and describes the changes of attentional expressions in interchanges between a pair of fraternal twins, 1 deaf and 1 hearing, from the age of 10-40 months, and their Deaf family members. The video-observed attentional expressions of initiating and reestablishing interchange were grouped in 5 functional…

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…
