Reading to Deaf Children: Learning From Deaf Adults

Considerable research has explored the most effective strategies used by deaf parents and teachers for reading to deaf children. Based on those studies and direct observations by the author, the fifteen principles outlined in *the accompany manual and vividly demonstrated on the videotape are a guide for parents and teachers who want to promote literacy, and share the pleasure of reading with the deaf and hard of hearing children.
