Issues in Second Language Literacy Education with Learners Who Are Deaf
Mayer, Connie
International Journal of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism, v12 n3 p325-334 May 2009
Deaf learners whose first language is American Sign Language face particular challenges and constraints in developing literacy in English as a second language. These constraints are interrogated and discussed in terms of their relationship to issues of language proficiency in both L1 and L2, and to models of second language literacy education. Suggestions are proposed as to ways in which these constraints might be addressed in designing future bilingual programs for deaf learners.
