Putting Print into Context to Help Deaf Children Read.
Finnegan, Margaret H.
Perspectives for Teachers of the Hearing Impaired, v7 n1 p6-9 Sep-Oct 1988
Deaf children need reading programs which emphasize comprehension of meaning rather than syntax and grammar. Successful reading programs can emerge when reading is viewed as a highly social experience, reading materials are meaningful and highly contextualized, and semantic processing in American Sign Language is used to assist reading in English.
