DEVELOPMENT OF THINKING IN THE DEAF--IMPLICATIONS FOR THE RELATION OF THINKING AND LANGUAGE.
FURTH, HANS G.
BASED ON EXPERIMENTATION EXAMINING THE THINKING CAPACITIES OF DEAF CHILDREN, THIS PAPER REPORTS FINDINGS ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP OF ABILITY TO LINGUISTIC EXPERIENCE. PERFORMANCE OF DEAF CHILDREN ON TASKS INVOLVING CONCEPT FORMATION AND LOGICAL THINKING WAS FOUND TO BE COMPARABLE TO THAT OF MATCHED HEARING SUBJECTS WHEN VERBALIZATION WAS NOT REQUIRED. THE DEAF PERFORMED POORER ON TASKS BASED ON VERBAL HABITS, AND CULTURALLY DEPRIVED HEARING CHILDREN PERFORMED MORE LIKE THE DEAF THAN LIKE ADVANTAGED HEARING CHILDREN. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDED THAT INTELLECTUAL AND PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT ARE NOT DEPENDENT ON LINGUISTIC COMPETENCE BUT ON EXPOSURE TO REAL LIFE SITUATIONS. LANGUAGE PROVIDES INTELLECTUAL BENEFIT DURING EARLY DEVELOPMENT ONLY IF IT IS THE MEANS OF INTELLECTUAL STIMULATION. (HK)
