This paper will review some familiar counselling challenges, such as the disappointment that…

Swanwick, Ruth; Marschark, Marc – Deafness and Education International, 2010
Decades of research on educational and basic scientific questions relating to deaf children have yielded a wealth of knowledge about how they learn and develop as thinking, social, problem-solving individuals. However, we currently lack channels for communication from teachers to researchers about the priorities in education and from researchers…

Pagliaro, Claudia M.; Kritzer, Karen L. – Deafness and Education International, 2010
Using a multiple case-study design, this study compares the early learning behaviours of young deaf/hard-of-hearing (d/hh) children with high/low mathematics ability (as defined by test score on the Test of Early Mathematics Ability-3). Children's simultaneous use of multiple learning behaviours was also examined as were contributing adult…

Hogan, Sarah; Stokes, Jacqueline; Weller, Isobel – Deafness and Education International, 2010
A common misconception about families in the UK who choose to participate in an Auditory Verbal (AV) approach for their child with hearing impairment, is that they are uniformly from affluent backgrounds. It is asserted that the good spoken language outcomes in these children are a product of the child's social background and family's values…

Brown, P. Margaret; Paatsch, Louise – Deafness and Education International, 2010
This study investigated the beliefs and practices of 28 teachers of the deaf about their practices. The teachers were all working in oral settings either as visiting teachers or teachers in a mainstream school facility supporting groups of students with hearing loss. Teachers who used an Auditory Verbal approach largely adopted a positivist…

Sutton-Spence, Rachel; Ramsey, Claire – Deafness and Education International, 2010
Deaf teachers around the world have folk models and beliefs that reflect their understanding of what deaf children need to learn in order to develop healthy identities as deaf people. In this research we report what teachers from England, the USA and Mexico have told us about using creative signing with deaf children. Themes emerging from our data…

Daigle, Daniel; Ammar, Ahlem; Berthiaume, Rachel; Besse, Anne-Sophie.; Bastien, Michel – Deafness and Education International, 2010
This study aims at investigating syllabic processes in deaf readers (n = 35) who were compared to readers of French as a second language (n = 23) and to expert readers (n = 40). Two experimental tasks varying in their degree of phonological awareness were created: one awareness- task and one awareness+ task. Results show that all participants have…

Cambra, Cristina; Leal, Aurora; Silvestre, Nuria – Deafness and Education International, 2010
This study explores the diversity of interpretations that can arise in cases where people with hearing loss perceive the information deriving from sound and language differently to how it is perceived by those without hearing impairment. Three experimental situations were designed in which 20 deaf adolescents and 20 hearing classmates view a film…

Ozbic, Martina; Kogovsek, Damjana – Deafness and Education International, 2010
Hearing-impaired speakers show changes in vowel production and formant pitch and variability, as well as more cases of overlapping between vowels and more restricted formant space, than hearing speakers; consequently their speech is less intelligible. The purposes of this paper were to determine the differences in vowel formant values between 32…

Smith, Jenny; Dann, Marilyn; Brown, P. Margaret – Deafness and Education International, 2009
A key objective when fitting hearing aids to children is to maximize the audibility of high frequency speech cues which are critical in the understanding of spoken English. Recent advances in digital signal processing have enabled the development of hearing aids which offer linear frequency transposition as a new way of accessing these important…

Ibertsson, Tina; Hansson, Kristina; Asker-Arnason, Lena; Sahlen, Birgitta – Deafness and Education International, 2009
This study examined the relationship between speech recognition, working memory and conversational skills in a group of 13 children/adolescents with cochlear implants (CIs) between 11 and 19 years of age. Conversational skills were assessed in a referential communication task where the participants interacted with a hearing peer of the same age…
