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…

This study addresses the topic of visual communication and early sign language acquisition in deaf children with a Flemish Sign Language (Vlaamse Gebarentaal or VGT) input. Results are obtained through a checklist focusing on sign-exposed deaf children's visual communication and early sign language acquisition: the adapted VGT Visual Communication…

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…

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…

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…

Stoll, Chloé; Palluel-Germain, Richard; Caldara, Roberto; Lao, Junpeng; Dye, Matthew W. G.; Aptel, Florent; Pascalis, Olivier – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Previous research has suggested that early deaf signers differ in face processing. Which aspects of face processing are changed and the role that sign language may have played in that change are however unclear. Here, we compared face categorization (human/non-human) and human face recognition performance in early profoundly deaf signers, hearing…

Marschark, Marc; Zettler, Ingo; Dammeyer, Jesper – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The notion of the Deaf community as a linguistic-cultural minority has been increasingly recognized and studied over the last two decades. However, significant differences of opinion and perspective within that population typically have been neglected in the literature. Social dominance orientation (SDO), a theoretical construct, typically…

Gold, Rinat; Segal, Osnat – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
In the present study, we compared the processing of both conventional and novel metaphors by deaf versus hearing young adults. Eighteen deaf participants with severe-to-profound hearing loss and 18 controls matched for age, sex, and years of education were presented with word pairs of 4 types (literal, conventional metaphors, novel metaphors, and…

Torres, Jesús; Saldaña, David; Rodríguez-Ortiz, Isabel R. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
The goal of this study was to compare the processing of social information in deaf and hearing adolescents. A task was developed to assess social information processing (SIP) skills of deaf adolescents based on Crick and Dodge's (1994; A review and reformulation of social information-processing mechanisms in children's social adjustment.…

Ambrose, Sophie E.; Thomas, Anne; Moeller, Mary Pat – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
The main purpose of the current investigation was to determine whether the Vocal Development Landmarks Interview-Experimental Version (VDLI-E) was sensitive to variation in the vocal development of infants and toddlers who are hard of hearing. The VDLI-E is an interactive parent interview that uses audio samples of authentic infant vocalizations…

Dye, Matthew W. G. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Development of the visual system typically proceeds in concert with the development of audition. One result is that the visual system of profoundly deaf individuals differs from that of those with typical auditory systems. While past research has suggested deaf people have enhanced attention in the visual periphery, it is still unclear whether or…

Marschark, Marc; Sarchet, Thomastine; Trani, Alexandra – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Deaf individuals have been found to score lower than hearing individuals across a variety of memory tasks involving both verbal and nonverbal stimuli, particularly those requiring retention of serial order. Deaf individuals who are native signers, meanwhile, have been found to score higher on visual-spatial memory tasks than on verbal-sequential…

Anderson, Melissa L.; Kobek Pezzarossi, Caroline M. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2014
Using a sample of Deaf female undergraduate students, the current study sought to investigate the prevalence, correlates, and characteristics of intimate partner violence victimization in hearing-Deaf and Deaf-Deaf relationships. Initial results suggest that similarities in hearing status and communication preference are associated with increased…

Spencer, Linda J.; Tomblin, J. Bruce; Gantz, Bruce J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
The long-term educational/vocational, affiliation, and quality-of-life outcomes of the first and second cohorts of children with bilateral, profound hearing loss who received cochlear implants under a large National Institutes of Health-funded study was investigated in 41 of 61 eligible participants. Educational and vocational outcomes were…

Most, Tova; Gaon-Sivan, Gal; Shpak, Talma; Luntz, Michal – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2012
Binaural hearing in cochlear implant (CI) users can be achieved either by bilateral implantation or bimodally with a contralateral hearing aid (HA). Binaural-bimodal hearing has the advantage of complementing the high-frequency electric information from the CI by low-frequency acoustic information from the HA. We examined the contribution of a…
