Deafening Silence: The Educational Experiences of Gifted Deaf People.
Vialle, Wilma; Paterson, John
Gifted Education International, v13 n1 p13-22 1998
Case studies based on interviews with five gifted deaf adults found a common frustration with schooling, a reluctance to be double-labeled as gifted and deaf, recognition of the importance of a supportive home environment and positive socialization experiences, and identity with the deaf community as a critical factor in personal success. Results have implications for identification and educational services. (DB)
