Literacy Learning: Meeting the Needs of Children Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing with Additional Special Needs
Truax, Roberta Ringhand; Foo, Sue Fan; Whitesell, Kathleena
Volta Review, v104 n4 p307-326 2004
A child with a hearing loss, with or without additional special needs, comes to the processes of reading and writing with unique strengths and challenges. This article presents learning conditions developed by Brian Cambourne which form a framework that parent-professional teams may use to evaluate and/or develop appropriate physical and social environments to foster language and literacy learning, an overview of the three primary components of any language, and suggestions on how the application of Gardner's Multiple Intelligence theory may be used as a guideline in providing literacy learning experiences.
