  • Exploring the Experiences of d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children in a
           Mainstream School in Zimbabwe: A Narrative Analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is important to note that the interaction between the individual and his or her surrounding environment is mediated through sensory experiences. The sense of hearing generally facilitates communication and promotes social interaction among children. This means that hearing is the key to the acquisition of spoken language and to children’s cognitive development.The literature on d/Deaf and hard of hearing children has increased in American and European countries more than in developing countries of Africa, with only a few studies focusing on Africa. For example, Rusinga (2012) investigated d/Deaf and hard of hearing youths’ perceptions about their vulnerability to sexual and reproductive health problems. Lenta ... Read More

  • The Relation Between Numerical Magnitude Processing and Mathematical
           Performance in d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children: The Influence of
           Fluency

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Numerical magnitude processing is the mental manipulation of quantitative information consisting of either symbolic numbers (e.g., Arabic digits) or nonsymbolic quantities (e.g., dot arrays; Tudusciuc & Nieder, 2007; Turconi et al., 2004). The relationship between numerical magnitude processing and mathematical performance in typically developing children has been extensively explored in the fields of psychology and cognitive neuroscience, but the results have been somewhat mixed. Many studies have found positive associations between numerical magnitude processing and mathematical performance among typically developing children (Bonny & Lourenco, 2013; Fazio et al., 2014; LeFevre et al., 2010; Mazzocco et al. ...

  • Longing to Belong: Hard of Hearing Young Adults’ Experiences of Social
           Identity and Group Membership

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Choices about friends, partners, study, work, and participation in other activities have multiple influences, a major one being identity. Identity is created through individuals’ perceptions of themselves and others’ perceptions of them (Hammarén & Johansson, 2009; Read et al., 2015; Stier, 2003). Identity is not connected to just one factor. Individual histories comprise collective reference points, such as gender and class affiliations, and individual reference points, such as hearing loss and the use of sign language (Johansson & Lalander, 2013). Social identity is the aspect of the self that is defined by group membership. Social identity, which is important for the sense of group affiliation, highlights the ... Read More

  • Predicting Reading Fluency in Chinese Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students:
           Contributions of Character Recognition, Expressive Vocabulary, and
           Syntactic Awareness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) historically have faced challenges in reading (Monreal & Hernandez, 2005; Wauters et al., 2006). This phenomenon can be partly explained by the discrepancy between these students’ language and reading systems; that is, the incomplete language system of DHH students is not well matched with the demands of the reading system (Perfetti & Sandak, 2000). In a growing number of studies, researchers have been analyzing the underlying mechanism of DHH students’ reading from the perspective of influencing factors, in the hope of preventing excessive lags in their reading outcomes (e.g., Daza et al., 2014; Kyle & Harris, 2006, 2010; Lee et al., 2018; Zhao et al., 2019). However ... Read More

  • An Initial Investigation of the American Sign Language Version of the
           Self-Determination Inventory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The impact of systemic barriers that impede access to language and information for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) is visible in statistics. For example, in a report for the National Deaf Center on Postsecondary Outcomes, Garberoglio et al. (2017) wrote that nearly half of all deaf adults are not engaged in the labor force, with the employment rate for this population being 24% less than that of their typically hearing peers. Garberoglio et al. noted that the educational attainment of DHH adults is also significantly less: Compared on a percentage basis to typically hearing individuals, only about half as many deaf individuals complete a bachelor’s degree. The need to address these gaps is ... Read More

  • Ejecting Ableism to Another Planet

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: As an avid science fiction fan, I first heard of Elsa Sjunneson through her work in that speculative field and learned very quickly thereafter that she is Deafblind. First impressions are important, though, and I have continued to think of Sjunneson as a science fiction writer who is Deafblind, not a Deafblind person who writes science fiction. Based on her memoir Being Seen: One Deafblind Woman’s Fight to End Ableism, I now know that she is a person who does a great many things, from fencing to burlesque. She is also an activist, an editor, and a traveler. Being Deafblind is simultaneously the most significant thing about her, and perhaps the least important.The book opens with the type of personal summary one ... Read More

  • Kathee M. Christensen: “Thinking Beyond the Ears”

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Kathee entered the Deaf world at the Michigan School for the Deaf, in Flint, as the only child of hearing parents. Her father was dean of boys (as well as a teacher and coach), and her mother was a teacher. As she played with deaf children of all ethnicities on weekends, Kathee developed her first languages: spoken English and American Sign Language (ASL). She later wrote thatwhen I started kindergarten, I realized that my communication skills were unique and not particularly respected. One of my earliest memories is the face of my kindergarten teacher, who sternly told me that “we don’t use deaf-and-dumb hand signals here!” I’m sure I wondered, “Why not'” This was, indeed, my first experience with marginalization ...

  • The Politicization of Scholarship

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: From the development of theories to the conducting of research to the implementation of practice, the encroachment of politics and ideologies in scholarly works seems to be unavoidable. Every scholar operates from an explicit or implicit meta-theory or mental framework that they propose is the best position to take (Noddings, 2007; Pring, 2004; Ritzer, 2001). Too much zeal for this specific mental framework leads to a lack of a balanced treatment and may come across as taking the stance that this is the only position that is viable. This may be reflective of extreme bias or, perhaps, “questionable writing practices” (Roig, 2011, p. 1). So, in one sense, stating your “position” or even your “positionality” is ... Read More
