"Hate English! Why?..." Signs and English from Deaf Children's Perception. Results from a Preliminary Study of Deaf Children's Experiences of Sign Bilingual Education
Sutherland, Hilary; Young, Alys
Deafness and Education International, v9 n4 p197-213 Dec 2007
To date, much information about Sign Bilingualism, gleaned from parents and/or teachers, has been written from a strong hearing viewpoint. As deaf children should be the main beneficiaries from a Sign Bilingual Education, this project was designed to enable the children to recall their experiences and share their multi-aspect views with other deaf children and the deaf researcher. The children had opportunities to express themselves freely in their first language, British Sign Language, using the deaf-centred prompting tools to inform/enlighten readers about their experiences of a Sign Bilingual journey.
