Kecman, Emily – Deafness & Education International, 2019
The provision of information is generally not a technical activity, but rather a contextualized social action.

A linear mixed effect model and regression was used to derive 'stage-for-age' trajectory and growth centiles from the…

Laugen, Nina J.; Jacobsen, Karl H.; Rieffe, Carolien; Wichstrøm, Lars – Deafness & Education International, 2017
Hearing loss may represent a risk for developing social skills difficulties; however, little is known about the potential risk resulting from unilateral or mild bilateral hearing loss (UMHL). We compared the social skills of 14 children with UMHL and 21 children with moderate to severe hearing loss (MSHL) with those of 123 children with typical…

The effectiveness of eAVT for the language development of Mandarin-speaking preschoolers with hearing loss was…

Brown, P. Margaret; Watson, Linda M. – Deafness & Education International, 2017
This paper reviews and synthesizes research into the ways in which parents support their child across three major developmental domains in early childhood: early language, play and early literacy. We show how these domains are linked to each other and suggest that there is some evidence that interventions in all of them will promote mutual…

Curle, Deirdre M. – Deafness & Education International, 2015
Both prior to and during the transition from early intervention (EI) to school, parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (d/hh) need crucial information about the transition process and school services. Given the ubiquitous nature of computers and Internet access, it is reasonable to assume that web-based dissemination of information…

In the last two decades the population of deaf children has changed dramatically in these countries where universal hearing screening, early intervention, digital hearing aids, and cochlear implants are available. Most of these children can now acquire intelligible spoken language and they go to mainstream school in larger proportions. But…
