  • Philosophy of Deafness: Confluence of Special Education and Disability
           Studies'
    • Abstract: After re-reading my previous editorial on the philosophy of deafness (Paul, 2018), I still have the "metaphysical itch" (Post, 1991), which means, in this case, that there is always room for further dialogue on the construct philosophy of deafness. Continuation of this discussion should reiterate several important points and provide some understanding of why some people become educators or clinicians who desire to work with individuals who are d/Deaf and hard of hearing. In addition, I contend that thinking further about the construct disability should shed additional light on how a number of d/Deaf and hard of hearing individuals view their physical constitutions or—in brief—their bodies (e.g., see discussions in ...

  • Hearing Managers of Deaf Workers: A Phenomenological Investigation in the
           Restaurant Industry
    • Abstract: Deaf adults have long struggled to secure and retain competitive employment in the United States. The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and, most notably, the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 are key pieces of federal legislation mandating accommodations in workplaces, educational institutions, and public settings. While often considered members of a larger disabled population due to an inability to hear, people who are culturally Deaf consider deafness to be a natural, normal characteristic (Padden & Humphries, 1988) and assert that the only thing rendering them "disabled" is the difficulty of interaction in a predominantly hearing society. Though the promotion of Deaf culture (denoted with a capital "D") as ... Read More

  • The Impact of Language Input on Deaf and Hard of Hearing Preschool
           Children Who Use Listening and Spoken Language
    • Abstract: Since the inception of federally mandated newborn hearing screening, there have been inevitable changes in already-existing early intervention programs as well as the overall field of deaf education. Two to three out of every 1,000 children born in the United States are diagnosed with permanent hearing loss every year; 90% of these children are born to hearing parents who use spoken language to communicate (National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders [NIDCD], 2015). In addition to the legislative support for early detection of hearing loss, technological advances have intensified the pace of change. Assistive hearing technology, including digital hearing aids, cochlear and brainstem implants ... Read More

  • Deaf Children and Their Families: Sustainability, Sign Language, and
           Equality
    • Abstract: This article is excerpted from Young, A. (2016). Deaf children and their families: Sustainability, sign language, and equality. In G. A. M. De Clerck & P. V. Paul (Eds.), Sign language, sustainable development, and equal opportunities (pp. 32–48). Washington, DC: Gallaudet University Press.Hearing parents commonly describe their initial response to knowing their child is deaf in terms such as grief, trauma, loss, and crisis (Kurtzer-White & Luterman, 2003; Luterman, 1999). It is possible to argue that such responses arise from negative connotations associated with deafness (Beazley & Moore, 1995) and a predominant discourse that constructs deaf children as impaired versions of hearing children (Young & Russell ...

  • Inclusive Education—A Sustainable Approach'
    • Abstract: This article is excerpted from Jokinen, M. (2016). Inclusive education—A sustainable approach' In G. A. M. De Clerck & P. V. Paul (Eds.), Sign language, sustainable development, and equal opportunities (pp. 105–117). Washington, DC: Gallaudet University Press.Full participation is one of the general principles in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (CRPD) for enabling the enjoyment of human rights. This concept cuts across all issues in the Convention, and is a specific obligation of states/parties that have ratified the Convention document. Other general principles relevant to the education of deaf persons are respect for the evolving capacities of children with disabilities ... Read More

  • Literacy, Literate Thought, and Deafness
    • Abstract: This article is excerpted from Paul, P. V. (2016). Literacy, literate thought, and deafness. In G. A. M. De Clerck & P. V. Paul (Eds.), Sign language, sustainable development, and equal opportunities (pp. 118–133). Washington, DC: Gallaudet University Press.Literate thought refers to the ability to access (visually or auditorily) and interpret (comprehend and apply) learned (e.g., serious, scholarly, and academic) information either through the air or in the "captured information mode" (e.g., audiobooks, signed books, print, Braille).To understand this description of literate thought, it is necessary to deconstruct print literacy. I focus on English reading as my example. This example can serve as an analogy for ... Read More
