Figueroa, Mario; Darbra, Sònia; Silvestre, Núria – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Previous research has shown a possible link between reading comprehension and theory of mind (ToM), but these findings are unclear in adolescents with cochlear implants (CI). In the present study, reading comprehension and ToM were assessed in adolescents with CI and the relation between both skills was also studied. Two sessions were performed on…

Sidera, Francesc; Morgan, Gary; Serrat, Elisabet – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Children who are deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) and born to hearing parents have delays in their social-cognitive development and in particular in their theory of mind (ToM). These delays are often attributed to the difficulties they encounter in acquiring age-appropriate linguistic and communicative skills. The present study asks whether this…

This study used a qualitative approach to identify their experiences of peer problems and factors influencing them. A sample of 30, 13-19 year-old DHH adolescents with a moderate to profound hearing loss, drawn from a…

Antia, Shirin D.; Lederberg, Amy R.; Easterbrooks, Susan; Schick, Brenda; Branum-Martin, Lee; Connor, Carol M.; Webb, Mi-Young – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
We examined the language and reading progress of 336 young DHH children in kindergarten, first and second grades. Trained assessors tested children's language, reading, and spoken and fingerspelled phonological awareness in the fall and spring of the school year. Children were divided into groups based on their auditory access and classroom…

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…

Salehomoum, Maryam – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Research examining the outcome of pediatric cochlear implantation consists of certain limitations, including the use of assessments that are often restricted to auditory-spoken skills, biased recruitment practices, and lack of consideration for identity development. To better understand the long-term outcome of implantation, it is vital to seek…

Lambez, Tal; Nagar, Maayan; Shoshani, Anat; Nakash, Ora – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
The sociocultural approach regards being deaf as a cultural characteristic in the identity of a deaf/hard-of-hearing (D/HH) person. The degree to which one integrates the hearing and Deaf cultures ("acculturation") is an important factor for the well-being of deaf adolescents. We examined the relationship between acculturation patterns…

This paper presents the design and development of the Hong Kong Sign Language-Sentence Repetition Test (HKSL-SRT). It will be argued that the test offers evidence of discriminability, reliability, as well as practicality and can serve as an effective global measurement of individuals' proficiency in HKSL. The full version of the test consists of…

Daigle, Daniel; Berthiaume, Rachel; Costerg, Agnès; Plisson, Anne – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
For deaf students, spelling acquisition is a considerable challenge, especially because the spelling code is based on an oral language to which most of them have limited access. Most studies conducted with deaf students have reported that they lag behind their hearing peers. However, few studies have used a fine-grained error classification grid.…
