  • Dr. Andrew Foster: A Literature Review
    • Abstract: Andrew Foster (1927–1987), a pioneering deaf African American missionary, provided the single most important contribution to the education of deaf Africans in the colonial and postcolonial periods. Foster has become a legend in the African history of the Deaf, and rightly so. It seems hard to overstate his significance for the education of the Deaf in West Africa. He has been likened to key figures in the Deaf history of other countries such as Laurent Clerc and Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet in the United States of America. The all-but-forgotten life and legacy of Dr. Andrew Foster have resurfaced in recent publications and activities. A growing body of research that includes articles or chapters by ... Read More

  • Unregulated Autonomy: Uncredentialed Educational Interpreters in Rural
           Schools
    • Abstract: Data suggest that more than 87% of Deaf and Hard of Hearing children attend regular public schools all or part of the school day (Office of Special Education Programs, 2014). Many of these students gain access to the school system and curriculum through an educational interpreter. These interpreters must be able to decode and comprehend the complex source-language message, extract its meaning, and then reformulate it into an equally complex target-language message (Cokely, 1992; Pöchhacker, 2004; Seleskovitch, 1978). All of this must be done in multifaceted classrooms, often with users with developing language and cognitive skills (Schick, 2001; Winston, 2001). To ensure that educational interpreters possess ...

  • The Effect of Handwriting Training on Language Learning Among Deaf
           Children and Their Matched Hearing Peers in China
    • Abstract: The lexical quality hypothesis asserts that word-specific memories of orthographic, phonological, and semantic constituents for each word in a reader’s vocabulary are a prerequisite for a high level of proficiency in reading and writing (Perfetti, 1992). Within this framework, a high-quality lexical representation is complete and accurate in all three constituents, with strong links in between (Perfetti, 2007). Whether this sound-form-meaning triangle can be solidified in beginning readers who are deaf or hard of hearing has not been examined empirically, however. Furthermore, the lexical constituency model (Perfetti, Liu, & Tan, 2005) also suggests that phonological awareness might be less important than ... Read More

  • National Provisions for Certification and Professional Preparation in
           Low-Incidence Sensory Disabilities: A 50-State Study
    • Abstract: In the present article, we report findings from a 50-state study of preparation programs and professional licensure for low-incidence sensory disabilities (LISD): hearing impairment (HI), visual impairment (VI), and deaf-blindness (DB).1 Preparation and licensure are fundamental to adequately serving students with low-incidence sensory disabilities. And these students are not typically served adequately. First, by definition, students with LISD—even among those students with individualized education programs—are comparatively rare, accounting for only 1.2% of students ages 6–21 years served under Part B of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA; Office of Special Education Programs ...

  • The Mythical Average in an Age of Individual Complexity
    • Abstract: During the age of innocence in a world that is perceived to have been less complex than the present, I was an undergraduate elementary education major. Most of my professors pontificated that we needed to teach to the average student in our classrooms. In addition, we were led to believe that textbooks were actually written with the average student in mind at that grade level—that is, students who were reading at an average grade level or higher. The dictum seemed to be stated like this: The performance of an individual can be best understood when it is contextualized and compared with the average performance of a group. In accordance with this line of thinking, a teacher-made test was deemed to ... Read More

  • A Systematic Review of the Use of LENA Technology
    • Abstract: The purpose of the present article is to present the results of a systematic review of studies conducted with LENA technology. LENA (Language ENvironment Analysis) is a recently developed language measurement and analysis tool that is being used in a variety of settings by researchers, clinicians, hospitals, and therapists to study, assess, and accelerate the developing language skills of numerous child populations. The LENA system measures the quantity of spoken language in a child’s environment by means of a small wearable digital recorder and patented processing software. The recorder collects up to 16 hours of continuous speech data generated in the vicinity of a particular child. Once these audio data ... Read More
