  • The Abrupt Transition to Online Learning: Multiple Perspectives

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This introductory article provides a foundational overview for this Special Issue of the American Annals of the Deaf focusing on the needs of deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) children and students at every stage of education, up to and including deaf education teacher preparation programs, at a time when face-to-face learning came to an abrupt halt and instruction transitioned to virtual environments. The contributors to this issue recognize the challenges, barriers, and impact for DHH students, which were magnified and became a priority as a result of online learning. Policymakers, researchers, teachers, families, and students learned a great deal related to access and accommodations in a virtual learning ... Read More

  • Is the Window of Learning Only Cracked Open' Parents’ Perspectives on
           Virtual Learning for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization reported that more than 1.5 billion students’ education was affected when the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic (UNESCO, 2020). With this declaration came abrupt school closures, leaving teachers and students only several days to transition from in-person to virtual learning (Ortiz, 2020). Regardless of the subject taught, many teachers were wholly unprepared for the sudden transition into learning new technologies, managing online classrooms, and maintaining best teaching practices virtually during a worldwide pandemic (Zapalska et al., 2020).Within deaf education, teachers were faced with unexpected difficulties regarding ...

  • Virtual Assessment of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students in the Schools

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: According to the U.S. Department of Education (2018), approximately 76,000 deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students nationwide receive special education services under the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act. Research findings suggest that anywhere from 40% to 50% of such students have a co-occurring special education eligibility (Gallaudet Research Institute, 2011; Mitchell & Karchmer, 2012; Schum, 2004). Due to the heterogeneity of this population (i.e., level of hearing loss, preference for sign over technology-aided spoken language, etc.), no universal assessment technique exists for determining if DHH students exhibit specific learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, or other conditions in the ...

  • Universal Design for Learning Supports Distance Learning for Deaf Students

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, schools across the United States had to shift to distance learning, often with very little notice. This rapid pivot from in-person to distance learning had many implications for students receiving special education services. Particularly for deaf and hard of hearing students (hereafter, deaf), the affected areas included day-to-day instruction and activities and bigger-picture concerns such as how to ensure that students continued to receive a free appropriate public education (FAPE) as guaranteed by the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act Amendments of 2004 (IDEA), a civil rights law specific to the United States.FAPE is provided to students in the ...

  • Deaf Education Teachers and Online Instruction: Ensuring Equity in
           Instructional Activities and Collaboration

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2020, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic ravaged the world, many people had to readjust their daily routines and become accustomed to a new way of life. While adhering to safety protocols, such as conducting business virtually and isolating at home, communities tried to continue with as much normalcy as possible. During these unprecedented times of uncertainty and stress, it became especially critical for families and teachers to be cognizant of the ways in which the changes were affecting students’ mental health, including depression and increased anxiety (Alexander, 2020). Both families and schools needed to recognize that a lack of socialization with friends and the inability to enjoy familiar group ... Read More

  • Online Learning Challenges and Strategies: Visual Fatigue and Split Visual
           Attention

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic led many K–12 and postsecondary programs to put at least some of their instruction online. Overall, more than 54 million students across the country received their instruction at home, with teachers from more than 118,000 schools preparing lesson plans, hands-on activities, and learning strategies void of a classroom (Teach for America Editorial Team, 2020). Classrooms are returning to face-to-face (F2F) instruction as rates of COVID-19 infection decline. However, online instruction is expected to remain a common means of educational service delivery (Li & Lilani, 2020). Therefore, the online learning challenges faced by deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students must be identified and mitigated ... Read More

  • Through the Looking Glass: Perceptions About Virtual Visits From Deaf
           Mentors in the SKI-HI Network

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is well established that early intervention services for children ages birth to 3 years who have disabilities should be family centered, considering the needs and strengths of the individual child as well as those of the family (Bailey et al., 2012; Division for Early Childhood, 2014; Dunst & Espe-Sherwindt, 2014). Moeller et al. (2013) published an international consensus statement establishing guidelines for home-based early intervention services. This consensus was a collaborative effort, agreed upon by professionals serving deaf or hard of hearing infants, toddlers, and young children and their families. The principles in this international consensus statement have become a guideline for best practices in ... Read More

  • Reflections From the Pandemic: Lessons Learned

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The articles in this American Annals of the Deaf Special Issue focus generally on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the impact it has had on deaf education. More specifically, these articles focus on sharing strategies to increase academic achievement, online engagement, positive learning outcomes, and social-emotional learning opportunities for deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students. While these discussions and strategies began as a result of virtual learning that was created to cope with the pandemic, what was learned can continue to be implemented by those working in the field of DHH education even as they recognize that research needs to continue across all areas. The authors of the articles in ... Read More

  • The Politicization of Scholarship: Redux

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In light of a recent New York Times op-ed article (Pamela Paul, 2023) and recent reviews of journal manuscripts (including one of my own by others), it is time to return to the subject of the politicization of scholarship. I covered aspects of this construct in a previous editorial (Peter V. Paul, 2022). In that piece, I provided my views on problematic concepts such as confirmation bias, unconscious bias, citation bias, cancellation, and censorship. In the present editorial, I cover related politicized constructs such as decolonization, lived experience, positionality, and citation “justice.” I have selected a few articles and web links for discussion purposes—and no doubt this is a reflection of my biases. ...

  • In Memoriam: Barbara R. Schirmer

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Barbara Rose Schirmer passed away on February 3, 2023, in Monroe, New Jersey. I count it an honor and privilege to reflect on the professional and personal life of my mentor, colleague, and friend.At 5’1”, Barbara was small only in stature; her presence loomed large in any setting. The quintessential leader, she was strong and smart, and her commitment to excellence, ethics, and integrity was unrivaled in the profession. Yet, her tenacious spirit belied the kindness, affection, and generosity those of us who knew her well experienced so often.I met Barbara in the early 1990s at an annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) in a session sponsored by the Special Interest Group for Research ...

  • In Memoriam: Barbara R. Schirmer

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Barbara was my first chairperson when I started my career at Kent State University in the late 1990s. She was always kind and supportive, taking a personal interest in me and my work. And she was just fun to talk with about academia and scholarship as well as daily life. I can hear her laughter as I write and remember. She was also a great scholarly model for me in my formative years as a professor. I remember that when she worked as chair, she was available to the department from 9:00 to 5:00, but after 5:00 was time for her own scholarship. More often than not, I would find her working on a paper late into the afternoon/evening.In the early 2000s, with debates regarding the benefits of special education playing ... Read More

      Abstract: Barbara gave me my first job in academia. In 2004, she was the dean of Miami University’s School of Education and Human Development, and I was a new special education Ph.D. graduate. I still remember our conversation during my interview. She was so engaged and interested in my scholarship and me as a person. She also shared her academic journey and passion for her work in Deaf education. I left the meeting feeling valued and knew right then that if offered, I would accept the position at Miami because I wanted to work for her.Although our time together at Miami University was brief, Barbara remained a constant presence in my life. She continued to express interest in my research and always made time to catch up on ... Read More

  • Remembering Barbara Rose Schirmer

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Barbara Rose Schirmer, one of the most remarkable scholars in our field, passed away on February 3, 2023. As indicated on the website (https://orlandsmemorial-chapel.com/barbara-schirmer/), Barbara obtained her bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in education from the University of Buffalo, State University of New York, and the University of Pittsburgh, respectively. Barbara really had a remarkable career, entailing stints as an academic professor, an administrator (dean, vice president for academic affairs, provost), and freelancing as an editor/consultant. I am inspired to keep the “R word” (i.e., retirement) out of my vocabulary for as long as possible—Barbara never really retired from her scholarly ... Read More
