Luckner, John L.; Dorn, Brittany – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The pressure that educators are experiencing to educate more students, with more challenges, to higher levels of learning than any time in the past is significantly changing their working conditions. The purpose of this study was to examine the perceptions of a national sample of teachers of students who are deaf or hard of hearing to ascertain…

Faes, Jolien; Gillis, Joris; Gillis, Steven – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The frequency of occurrence of words and sounds has a pervasive influence on typically developing children's language acquisition. For instance, highly frequent words appear earliest in a child's lexicon, and highly frequent phonemes are produced more accurately. This study evaluates (a) whether word frequency influences word accuracy and (b)…

Zaidman-Zait, Anat; Dotan, Adi – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
The current mixed-methods study examined everyday problems among deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) adolescents across various life domains. To better understand the factors influencing levels of perceived stress, the impact of DHH adolescents' coping and pragmatic abilities was also examined. Thirty DHH adolescents completed questionnaires about…

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…

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…

Williams, Joshua T.; Stone, Adam; Newman, Sharlene D. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Cognitive mechanisms for sign language lexical access are fairly unknown. This study investigated whether phonological similarity facilitates lexical retrieval in sign languages using measures from a new lexical database for American Sign Language. Additionally, it aimed to determine which similarity metric best fits the present data in order to…

Davenport, Carrie A.; Alber-Morgan, Sheila R.; Clancy, Shannon M.; Kranak, Michael P. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
This study examined the effects of a picture racetrack game on the acquisition, maintenance, and generalization of picture labeling for 2 preschool students who are deaf. The game consisted of placing photographs representing individualized target vocabulary around a racetrack board and prompting the participant to sign each photo. A multiple…

Matthijs, Liesbeth; Hardonk, Stefan; Sermijn, Jasmina; Van Puyvelde, Martine; Leigh, Greg; Van Herreweghe, Mieke; Loots, Gerrit – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Traditional research examining the communicational choices made by families with deaf children tends to emanate from the premise that families engage with either of the two grand discourses on deafness (i.e., the medical or cultural-linguistic perspective). This study investigated hearing mother's engagement with the educational options for their…

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…

Trezek, Beverly J. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Even though Cued Speech has been a communication option for 50 years, it has not been widely adopted among users of English or in the country where it was created (i.e., the United States). This situation has led scholars and practitioners in the field of deafness to question whether the original intent of creating this system has been realized…

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…

Krause, Jean C.; Lopez, Katherine A. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
This paper is the second in a series concerned with the level of access afforded to students who use educational interpreters. The first paper (Krause & Tessler, 2016) focused on factors affecting accuracy of messages produced by Cued Speech (CS) transliterators (expression). In this study, factors affecting intelligibility (reception by deaf…

Holmer, Emil; Heimann, Mikael; Rudner, Mary – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2017
Strengthening the connections between sign language and written language may improve reading skills in deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) signing children. The main aim of the present study was to investigate whether computerized sign language-based literacy training improves reading skills in DHH signing children who are learning to read. Further,…

Marshall, Matthew M.; Carrano, Andres L.; Dannels, Wendy A. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Individuals who are deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) are underrepresented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professions, and this may be due in part to their level of preparation in the development and retention of mathematical and problem-solving skills. An approach was developed that incorporates experiential learning and…

Hyoguchi, Naomi; Kobayashi, Daisuke; Kubota, Toshio; Shimazoe, Takao – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Deaf people often experience difficulty in understanding medication information provided by pharmacists due to communication barriers. We held medication education lectures for deaf and hard of hearing (HH) individuals and examined the extent to which deaf participants understood medication-related information as well as their attitude about…
