Product Description

Author: Patricia Elizab Spencer, Carol J. Erting and Marc Marschark (Editors)

Publisher: Lawrence Erlbaum

This book brings together chapters from an international group of researchers, educators, and clinicians, whose work focuses on the development of deaf and hard of hearing children and adolescents. A central theme is the ecological nature of development.

Characteristics of the child (for example, temperament, hearing status) interact with characteristics of the environment to produce a unique system that influences, and is influenced by, interactions in ever-broadening, hierarchically layered contexts. These contexts include family, friendship and peer groups, educational and therapeutic service providers, and larger social and political entities. These are all areas that must be considered holistically in order to effectively support the development and education of deaf children.

A tribute to a much-respected figure in Deaf education, this book also reflects the state of current understanding of the complex interacting domains in which Deaf children develop. For educationalists, health care professionals and those interested in the development of deaf children.
