Auditory Handicaps and Reading: An Annotated Bibliography.
Geoffrion, Leo D., Comp.; Schuster, Karen E., Comp.
This annotated bibliography on the reading achievement of the deaf is designed to aid those who wish to learn more about how children with severe auditory handicaps read. The various sections focus on the severity of the reading deficit of deaf students, the findings of basic research on how they read, and some of the instructional approaches currently advocated for these students. Part One contains 16 entries relating to background issues such as whether hearing problems automatically lead to cognitive problems and what other communication options exist for those who are hearing impaired. Part Two cites 49 entries that examine the extent of the reading problems of hearing imparied students and some of the psychometric and educational factors underlying these problems. Part Three examines basic research on reading and language skills and lists 64 pertinent articles. Part Four summarizes the current literature on instructional approaches to developing the reading skills of deaf students and contains references to 72 items. (MKM)
