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.…

Gimeno-Martínez, Marc; Costa, Albert; Baus, Cristina – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
In the past years, there has been a significant increase in the number of people learning sign languages. For hearing second language (L2) signers, acquiring a sign language involves acquiring a new language in a different modality. Exploring how L2 sign perception is accomplished and how newly learned categories are created is the aim of the…

Aanondsen, Chris Margaret; Jozefiak, Thomas; Heiling, Kerstin; Rimehaug, Tormod – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2020
The majority of studies on mental health in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children report a higher level of mental health problems. Inconsistencies in reports of prevalence of mental health problems have been found to be related to a number of factors such as language skills, cognitive ability, heterogeneous samples as well as validity problems…

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…

Michael, Rinat – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
This study examined the career decision-making self-efficacy (CDMSE) of deaf and typically hearing young adults and the contribution of career-related family support and expectations to this type of self-efficacy. Participants were 110 young adults: 50 deaf persons and 60 persons with typical hearing. They completed the Career Decision-Making…

Secora, Kristen; Emmorey, Karen – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2019
Social abilities relate to performance on visual-spatial perspective-taking (VSPT) tasks for hearing nonsigners but may relate differently to VSPT abilities for deaf signers because of their distinct linguistic and social experiences. This research investigated whether deaf adults approach VSPT tasks nonsocially (as previously suggested for deaf…

Fengler, Ineke; Delfau, Pia-Céline; Röder, Brigitte – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
It is yet unclear whether congenitally deaf cochlear implant (CD CI) users' visual and multisensory emotion perception is influenced by their history in sign language acquisition. We hypothesized that early-signing CD CI users, relative to late-signing CD CI users and hearing, non-signing controls, show better facial expression recognition and…

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…

Harris, Margaret; Terlektsi, Emmanouela; Kyle, Fiona Elizabeth – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Forty-one children with severe-profound prelingual hearing loss were assessed on single word reading, reading comprehension, English vocabulary, phonological awareness and speechreading at three time points, 1 year apart (T1-T3). Their progress was compared with that of a group of hearing children of similar nonverbal IQ, initially reading at the…
