Teaching as Transaction: Vygotskian Perspectives on Deafness and Mother-Child Interaction.
Jamieson, Janet R.
Exceptional Children, v60 n5 p434-49 Mar-Apr 1994
Three matched groups--hearing mother-hearing child, hearing mother-deaf child, and deaf mother-deaf child--were videotaped. Hearing mothers of deaf children were less likely to adapt their interactional strategies to meet their children's communicative needs and achieve intersubjectivity than were the other mothers. Results support Lev S. Vygotsky's dialectical notion of cognitive development. (Author/DB)
