Alasim, Khalid; Paul, Peter V. – Deafness & Education International, 2019

The present study investigated the attitudes of teachers of students who are hard of hearing and of general education…

Powell, Denise; Boon, Anita; Luckner, John – Deafness & Education International, 2019
One of the most important achievements individuals accomplish is the development of a first language.

One factor that hinders their language development is the fact that most of the adults they interact with do not sign well. The purpose of…
