How Do Deaf Children Learn about Prereading?
Andrews, Jean F.; Mason, Jana M.
American Annals of the Deaf, v131 n3 p210-17 Jul 1986
A prereading model based on a 9-month longitudinal study of 45 deaf preschool children from state residential schools is presented. The model contends that reading can be initiated by giving deaf children opportunities to match their internalized manual language to printed words, stressing reading-related activities involving parents, teachers, and peers.
