Working with Students Who Are Late-Deafened. PEPNet Tipsheet
Clark, Mary
PEPNet 2
Late-deafness means deafness that happened postlingually, any time after the development of speech and language in a person who has identified with hearing society through schooling, social connections, etc. Students who are late-deafened cannot understand speech without visual aids such as speechreading, sign language, and captioning (although amplification of residual hearing may help with speechreading). These students may have lost their hearing suddenly or gradually, but share the common experience of having been raised in a hearing world and having become deaf rather than having been born deaf. This paper presents some suggestions that will help teachers work more effectively with this population.
