The Deaf Mentor Experimental Project for Young Children Who Are Deaf and Their Families.
Watkins, Susan; Pittman, Paula; Walden, Beth
American Annals of the Deaf, v143 n1 p29-34 Mar 1998
Describes the Deaf Mentor Experimental Project, which provided deaf-mentor services to young deaf children, ages 0 to 5, and their families. Deaf adults (mentors) shared their language (American Sign Language), culture, and personal knowledge of deafness while serving as role models for the children. Program children made greater language gains and had larger vocabularies than controls. (DB)
