The Development of Social-Cognition in Deaf Preschool Children: A Pilot Study.
Young, Edward P.; Brown, S. Lane
Social cognitive abilities were evaluated in 23 deaf students (3 to 6 years old) through tasks requiring spatial perspective taking, cooperation, and receptive language. As hypothesized, language ability proved to be a prediction of both other variables, with the high correlation between language and perspective taking indicating a definite relationship. Special difficulties involved in comparative research with deaf and hearing children are noted. (CL)
