Communicating with Children Who Are Deaf: Pitfalls and Possibilities.
Wood, David; Wood, Heather
Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, v28 n4 p348-54 Oct 1997
This paper analyzes teacher communication with deaf students in terms of four dimensions: power, repair, pace, and linguistic complexity. Students interacting with teachers who used communicative features associated with power communicated less effectively than with teachers who exerted less power. Evidence that adults can change how they communicate with children who are deaf is also offered. (DB)
