Wang, Qiuying; Andrews, Jean F. – Deafness & Education International, 2017
The national policy in deaf education in Mainland China primarily focuses on oral/aural instruction and hearing rehabilitation.

Rudner, Mary; Andin, Josefine; Rönnberg, Jerker; Heimann, Mikael; Hermansson, Anders; Nelson, Keith; Tjus, Tomas – Deafness and Education International, 2015
The literacy skills of deaf children generally lag behind those of their hearing peers. The mechanisms of reading in deaf individuals are only just beginning to be unraveled but it seems that native language skills play an important role. In this study 12 deaf pupils (six in grades 1-2 and six in grades 4-6) at a Swedish state primary school for…

Vermeulen, Anneke; De Raeve, Leo; Langereis, Margreet; Snik, Ad – Deafness and Education International, 2012
Auditory perception with cochlear implants (CIs) enables the majority of deaf children with normal learning potential to develop (near) age-appropriate spoken language. As a consequence, a large proportion of children now attend mainstream education from an early stage. The acoustical environment in kindergartens and schools, however, might be…
