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…

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…

Bosworth, Rain; Stone, Adam; Hwang, So-One – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Language knowledge, age of acquisition (AoA), and stimulus intelligibility all affect gaze behavior for reading print, but it is unknown how these factors affect "sign-watching" among signers. This study investigated how these factors affect gaze behavior during sign language comprehension in 52 adult signers who acquired American Sign…

Reynolds, Gabriella; Werfel, Krystal L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
Home literacy practices reported by parents of preschool children with hearing loss were compared to those reported by parents of their peers with typical hearing. Parents completed a questionnaire from Boudreau, D. (2005. Use of a parent questionnaire in emergent and early literacy assessment of preschool children. Language, Speech, and Hearing…

Ambrose, Sophie E.; Appenzeller, Margo; Al-Salim, Sarah; Kaiser, Ann P. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of Ears On, an intervention designed to increase toddlers' use of hearing devices. A single-case, multiple-baseline design across participants was used with three parent-child dyads who demonstrated low hearing aid use despite enrollment in traditional early intervention services. Data…

Peñacoba, Cecilia; Garvi, Daniel; Gómez, Lourdes; Álvarez, Ana – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
This study aimed to explore emotional regulation, alexithymia, and interpersonal relations in a Spanish sample of 146 adult deaf participants and 146 typical hearing participants. For the deaf sample, the associations between type of language used and the above variables were also analyzed. Results showed that deaf participants scored higher on…

Young, Alys; Ferguson-Coleman, Emma; Wright, Barry; Le Couteur, Ann – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
The co-occurrence of childhood deafness and autism raises complex challenges for diagnosis and family support. In this article, we explore with hearing and Deaf parents their observations of the interaction between deafness and autism and identify how the intersections of deafness and autism are conceptualized in everyday life. Eight parents…

Brozdowski, Chris; Secora, Kristen; Emmorey, Karen – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
In ASL spatial classifier expressions, the location of the hands in signing space depicts the relative position of described objects. When objects are physically present, the arrangement of the hands maps to the observed position of objects in the world (Shared Space). For non-present objects, interlocutors must perform a mental transformation to…

Michael, Rinat; Attias, Joseph; Raveh, Eyal – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
This study examined the contribution of cochlear implants (CIs) to the social-emotional functioning of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (dhh). Sixty-three parents of children who are dhh participated in the study. Thirty children were CI users and 32 used hearing aids (HAs). They completed the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire and a…

Luft, Pamela – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
This manuscript reviews 28 studies of reading research on deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students published since 2000 that used correlational analyses. The examination focused on assessment issues affecting measurement and analysis of relationships between early phonological or orthographic skills and reading comprehension. Mixed outcomes…

Scott, Jessica A.; Hoffmeister, Robert J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Academic English is an essential literacy skill area for success in post-secondary education and in many work environments. Despite its importance, academic English is understudied with deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students. Nascent research in this area suggests that academic English, alongside American Sign Language (ASL) fluency, may play an…

Freeman, Valerie; Pisoni, David B.; Kronenberger, William G.; Castellanos, Irina – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Deaf children with cochlear implants (CIs) are at risk for psychosocial adjustment problems, possibly due to delayed speech-language skills. This study investigated associations between a core component of spoken-language ability--speech intelligibility--and the psychosocial development of prelingually deaf CI users. Audio-transcription measures…

Heimler, Benedetta; Baruffaldi, Francesca; Bonmassar, Claudia; Venturini, Marta; Pavani, Francesco – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Multisensory interactions in deaf cognition are largely unexplored. Unisensory studies suggest that behavioral/neural changes may be more prominent for visual compared to tactile processing in early deaf adults. Here we test whether such an asymmetry results in increased saliency of vision over touch during visuo-tactile interactions. About 23…

Crowe, Kathryn; Marschark, Marc; Dammeyer, Jesper; Lehane, Christine – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Deaf learners are a highly heterogeneous group who demonstrate varied levels of academic achievement and attainment. Most prior research involving this population has focused on factors facilitating academic success in young deaf children, with less attention paid to older learners. Recent studies, however, have suggested that while factors such…
