From the Field: Interview with Susan R. Easterbrooks and Ellen L. Estes
Montgomery, Judy
Communication Disorders Quarterly, v31 n4 p253-255 Aug 2010
This article presents an interview with Susan R. Easterbrooks, a professor of deaf education in the Educational Psychology and Special Education Department at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and Ellen L. Estes, the coordinator of the Katherine Hamm Center at the Atlanta Speech School, on their new book "Helping Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students to Use Spoken Language: A Guide for Educators and Families." Easterbrooks, as a teacher, clinician, administrator, school psychologist, consultant, and author, has had a wide variety of experiences with individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. Most recently, she has been the chair of the committee revising the set titled "Knowledge and Skills Needed by Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing" for the Division for Communicative Disabilities and Deafness (DCDD) and the Council for Exceptional Children. Meanwhile, Estes has been very active in the Alexander Graham Bell Association, serving as committee chair, conducting workshops, and consulting with schools nationwide. Easterbrooks and Estes shared how their professional backgrounds prepare them to write such a book and discussed their model of auditory, speech, and language development, and how it facilitates appropriate objectives chosen by educators and families.
