ASL-English Bilingual Classroom: The Families' Perspectives.
Allen, Bobbie M.
Bilingual Research Journal, v26 n1 p149-68 Spr 2002
A study examined 19 families' perspectives in an American Sign Language (ASL)-English early childhood bilingual classroom. Family attitudes changed due to a balanced presentation from hearing and deaf perspectives, learning that the entire family could become bilingual, encouragement to interact with the deaf community, and the presentation of ASL and English as equal languages.
