Hemispheric Specialization and Implications for the Education of the Hearing Impaired.
Levine, Shari
American Annals of the Deaf, v131 n3 p238-42 Jul 1986
Research indicates that deaf individuals do not develop the usual hemispheric specialization for verbal and nonverbal processing and that early severe hearing impairment influences the lateral organization of the brain for interpreting linguistic information. Possible instructional implications include encouraging an early symbol system for profoundly deaf young children and fostering creativity. (Author/CB)
