– Perspectives on Deafness
- Emphasises translation of research into practice
- Features an interdisciplinary group of international contributing authors
- Promotes and outlines evidence-based practice
This volume presents the latest research from internationally recognised researchers and practitioners on language, literacy and numeracy, cognition and social and emotional development of deaf learners.
In their contributions, authors sketch the backgrounds and contexts of their research, take interdisciplinary perspectives in merging their own research results with outcomes of relevant research of others and examine the consequences and future directions for teachers and teaching. Focusing on the topic of transforming state-of-the-art research into teaching practices in deaf education, the volume addresses how we can improve outcomes of deaf education through the professional development of teachers, the construction and implementation of evidence-based teaching practices and consideration of “the whole child,” thus emphasising the importance of integrative, interdisciplinary approaches.
