Kubicek, Emily; Quandt, Lorna C. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
Past work investigating spatial cognition suggests better mental rotation abilities for those who are fluent in a signed language. However, no prior work has assessed whether fluency is needed to achieve this performance benefit or what it may look like on the neurobiological level. We conducted an electroencephalography experiment and assessed…

Easterbrooks, Susan R.; Lederberg, Amy R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
The Center on Literacy and Deafness examined the language and reading progress of 336 young deaf and hard-of-hearing children in kindergarten, first and second grades on a series of tests of language, reading, and spoken and fingerspelled phonological awareness in the fall and spring of the school year. Children were divided into groups based on…

Krause, Jean C.; Hague, Andrew K. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
This paper, the fourth in a series concerned with the level of access afforded to students who use educational interpreters, focuses on the intelligibility of interpreters who use Signing Exact English (SEE). Eight expert receivers of SEE were employed to evaluate the intelligibility of transliterated messages that varied in accuracy and lag time.…

Gómez-Merino, Nadina; Fajardo, Inmaculada; Ferrer, Antonio; Arfé, Barbara – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Twenty participants who were deaf and 20 chronological age-matched participants with typical hearing (TH) (mean age: 12 years) were asked to judge the correctness of written sentences with or without a grammatically incongruent word while their eye movements were registered. TH participants outperformed deaf participants in grammaticality judgment…

Secora, Kristen; Emmorey, Karen – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
As spatial languages, sign languages rely on spatial cognitive processes that are not involved for spoken languages. Interlocutors have different visual perspectives of the signer's hands requiring a mental transformation for successful communication about spatial scenes. It is unknown whether visual-spatial perspective-taking (VSPT) or mental…

Bell, Nicola; Angwin, Anthony J.; Wilson, Wayne J.; Arnott, Wendy L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
This study compared the spelling skills and sub-skills of young children with cochlear implants (CIs) who use spoken language only (n = 14) with those of a same-aged typically hearing (TH) control group (n = 30). Spelling accuracy was assessed using irregular and nonsense word stimuli. Error and regression analyses were conducted to provide…

Krause, Jean C.; Murray, Nancy J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
This paper is the third in a series concerned with the level of access provided to deaf and hard of hearing children who rely on interpreters to access classroom communication. The first two papers focused on the accuracy and intelligibility of educational interpreters who use Cued Speech (CS); this study examines the accuracy of those who use…
