The Impact of Sign Language on the Cognitive Development of Deaf Children: The Case of Theories of Mind.
Courtin, Cyril
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v5 n3 p266-76 Sum 2000
The ability to attribute false beliefs by 155 deaf children (ages 5 and 8) grouped by communication mode and parental hearing status was compared to that of 39 hearing children (ages 4 to 6). Effective representational abilities were demonstrated by deaf children of deaf parents, whereas those with hearing parents appeared delayed, with differences according to their communication mode.
