Socialization and Language for Students with Hearing Impairments.
Beattie, Rod G.
CAEDHH Journal/La Revue ACESM, v24 n2-3 p99-105 1998
Addresses the importance of teaching students with hearing impairments zero-order pragmatic-language competencies (PLCs), those communicative and interactive behaviors necessary in everyday social situations to avoid being seen as deviant. Among PLCs are taking turns, initiating or adding to a conversation, and making repairs when necessary. Many individuals with hearing impairments need explicit instruction in such skills. (DB)
