Reviews

"Marschark has illuminated the complex issues related to language and literacy learning for children who are deaf or hard of hearing. This book will encourage greater discussion of these issues as we work to ensure that all children with hearing loss have access to learning environments that allow them to reach their fullest potential." --K. Todd Houston, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer, Alexander Graham Bell Association for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing "Complex issues are rarely susceptible to explanation in everyday language. In Marc Marscharks hands they are! Marschark skillfully describes, contrasts, and compares as he guides readers through the field of education of deaf children. He draws on his thorough knowledge of the research literature and provides readers with extensive reference citations of journal articles, books, and research reports. Truly, this is a book for everyone with a stake in raising and educating a deaf child." --Greg Leigh, Chair, The Renwick Centre, Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children / The University of Newcastle, Australia "If you want a thought-provoking book on how to raise and educate a deaf child, this is it. Marc Marschark leaves no stones unturned in his endeavor to distill the full gamut of current research on the developing deaf child into readable form. He describes multiple complex issues related to diagnosis, additional disabilities, language development, use of visual and auditory information, and educational/psychosocial implications. Parents will get a compendium of information that will help them with the goal of facilitating the development of a psychologically healthy deaf child. Emerging professionals inthe field of deafness will internalize a foundation for what hopefully will be a life-long process of learning what works best and why as they interact with deaf individuals and their families." --Irene W. Leigh, Professor of Psychology, Gallaudet University "Marschark's newest installment takes on some tough questions and answers them from a research-based point of view. A definitive work for parents seeking a deeper understanding of American Sign Language and Deaf culture." -- Leeanne Seaver, Executive Director, Hands & Voices National "This is a masterfully written book that addresses key issues parents face in raising a child who is deaf. Marschark has an amazing knowledge of the literature on deafness which he uses to address the difficult and controversial decisions parents face in terms of the education, communication, and socialization of their deaf children. He does this in an objective manner that is clear, concise, and comprehensive. Must reading for parents and professionals in the field." --McCay Vernon, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, McDonald College "Marschark has illuminated the complex issues related to language and literacy learning for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
