Context, Cognition, and Deafness examines the effect of environment and social settings upon the cognitive development of deaf children. Its interdisciplinary approach clarifies the frequently conflicting results of past studies by analyzing many methodologies. Its editors, widely respected scholars in their own right, have assembled work by a varying cast of renowned researchers to elucidate the effects of family, peers, and schools on deaf children. To integrate the often contrasting approaches of clinical and cultural researchers, this sharply focused volume has called upon experts in anthropology, psychology, linguistics, basic visual sensory processes, education, neurophysiology, and cognition to share complementary observations. This coherent and exceptional volume also includes research on: Literacy, cognition, and education; Combined sequential designs in vocabulary learning; The theory of mind development; The emotional development of deaf children; The coming of age of deaf children in relation to their education and development; The future of theory and application.
