  • Eye Movements of Deaf Students in Expository Versus Narrative Texts

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Students who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) have traditionally been found to have difficulty achieving age-appropriate reading comprehension (see, e.g., Barajas et al., 2016; Traxler, 2000). Knowledge and monitoring of text genre are important factors in text comprehension (Clinton et al., 2020; Duke et al., 2011; Mar et al., 2021). However, studies in this area with students who are DHH are scarce and difficult to compare due to methodological differences. For example, Figueroa et al. (2020) found that as a group, typically hearing (TH) students outperformed DHH students in reading comprehension accuracy regardless of the text genre, while in a case study, Banner and Wang (2011) found that DHH participants ...

  • The Role of Social Capital in the Transition to Postsecondary Education of
           Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Social capital is increasingly being recognized as an important factor in the lives of young people who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH; Byatt et al., 2019; Duncan et al., 2019, 2021; Oliva et al., 2016; Wong et al., 2016, 2018). Social capital is a multidimensional construct that has varying definitions and has been applied and researched across several disciplines. Generally, it is seen as the benefits, such as access to information, ideas, resources, and support, that flow from personal relationships and social networks, with their associated norms of reciprocity and trustworthiness, to individuals, groups, and society (Coleman, 1988; Putnam, 2020). The sociologist James S. Coleman emphasized its usefulness as ... Read More

  • Visual-Motor Integration in Language Learning Among Deaf and Hard of
           Hearing Children

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The term sensorimotor integration refers to "integrating multiple information sources" (Ghahramani et al., 1997, p. 117), and incorporating different sensorimotor behaviors to produce meaningful physical reactions and useful perception, emotion, and thought (Excell & Linington, 2011). In short, sensorimotor integration is the combination of information from movement and the senses.Embodied cognition posits that sensorimotor experiences in the early developmental period are necessary to acquire and retain conceptual knowledge (Wellsby & Pexman, 2014). Children's early language acquisition begins with the early integration of auditory, visual, and kinesthetic (i.e., motor) input, which supports the development of ... Read More

  • Was Alexander Graham Bell Anti-Deaf'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Deaf people who use sign language as a mode of communication have often suffered due to restrictions regarding the use of sign languages during their school years. Part of this legacy of suffering is often attributed to the infamous Milan Conference of 1880 and the voting members who were present there, Alexander Graham Bell being the most prominent among them. Katie Booth, author of The Invention of Miracles: Language, Power, and Alexander Graham Bell's Quest to End Deafness, explains these historical circumstances and the incidents in Bell's life that led him to believe that oral education would benefit deaf children. The book is an eye-opener for the people who have always considered Bell the enemy of sign ... Read More

  • Written Language and Culture

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: There is always one child in a class who, when everything else fails as a time-killer, is sure to ask, "May I take the waste-basket and clear out my desk'"Permission granted, contagion spreads. Every pupil near the first case is seized with a spasm of order. The waste-basket soon overflows. A pile of papers rises high on each desk. The teacher is appalled. Three sins are clearly apparent—negligence on his own part, disorder, and a wicked waste of institution paper on the children's side.The other day, moved by one of these impulses toward order which seldom get much beyond their starting-point, I sternly refused the initial request for the waste-basket. During the noon recess I made a personal inspection of every ... Read More

  • The Psychological Effects of Deafness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The work which is being done in centers around the world is gradually clarifying the relationship between deafness and psychological processes. Such study entails the psychology of normal sensory functioning as compared to the psychology of sensory deprivation. Specifically in reference to deafness it entails the psychology of hearing as compared to the psychology of non-hearing. First we shall consider some factors of normal sensory behavior.The five primary senses of man can be divided into "close" and "distance" senses. Such a classification is based on the extent to which the sense permits man to project himself into his environment. For example, gustation can be used to explore only the environment which is in ...

  • Developmental Characteristics of Working Memory in Hard of Hearing
           Children: Analysis by Language Ability and Task Variables

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Working memory is a function or system that temporarily retains relevant information while performing a particular task (Baddeley, 2012). Working memory is closely related to reading comprehension and academic performance (Daneman & Carpenter, 1980; Gathercole & Alloway, 2008), and its function of enabling short-term retention of information and processing of tasks under attentional control is considered the basis for high-order cognitive activity.Studies with hearing children suggest that the basic structure of working memory is organized by the age of 4 years (Alloway et al., 2006), and progressively improves with development (Gathercole et al., 2004; Igarashi & Kato, 2000; Siegel, 1994; Siegel & Ryan, 1989). ...

  • Perceptual Restoration in Speechreading by Adults With Profound Hearing
           Loss

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Perceptual restoration occurs when the brain can restore the missing speech information as it appeared to be heard (Kashino, 2006). Depending on the missing segment, the phoneme (Kashino, 2006), syllable (Repp, 1992; Warren, 1970), or the entire word can be restored (Sivonen et al., 2006). Such restoration is typical for auditory signals, as speech is redundant in both the time and frequency domains. In the time domain, the slow coarticulatory information, distributed over time, cues for missing segments (Saberi & Perrott, 1999). In the frequency domain, the overall spectral information cues for missing segments (Warren et al., 1997).There are two aspects to the restoration—apparent continuity and speech ... Read More

  • The 175th Anniversary of the American Annals of the Deaf: Part
           II—1901 through 1960

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This issue is the second part of a celebration of the 175th anniversary of the American Annals of the Deaf (see Paul, 2022, for the first part). After about a 7-year hiatus (1861–1868), the Annals resumed publication, and today, as I noted in Part I of this series of articles, it is purportedly the oldest continuously published refereed education journal in North America. In this issue, I cover the period from 1901 through 1960; my overview in the forthcoming Fall issue will address 1961 to the present. These are arbitrary divisions, not related to any specific turning-point event that occurred in 1901 or 1961.Although I am still interested in language and literacy, I attempted to be flexible and broad so that I ...
