Hamilton, Harley
Online Submission
This paper will review research on working memory and short-term memory abilities of deaf individuals delineating strengths and weaknesses. The areas of memory reviewed include weaknesses such as sequential recall, processing speed, attention, and memory load. Strengths include free recall, visuospatial recall, imagery and dual encoding. Phonological encoding, and rehearsal appear to be strengths when these strategies are employed. The implications of the strengths and weaknesses for language learning and educational achievement are discussed. Research questions are posed and remedial and compensatory classroom applications are suggested. (Contains 2 figures.) [This paper has been published in "American Annals of the Deaf" 156 (4).]
