1 - 2 weeks availability


The 20 provocative papers selected from the 18th International Congress on Education of the Deaf for this trenchant volume challenges the invested reader in four critical areas of deaf education worldwide. Part 1 addresses matters that range from considering critical periods for language acquisition to assessing the impact of immigration policies on the ethnic composition of Australia's Deaf community. Part 2 continues the debate with works on the perception of speech by deaf and hard of hearing children, and automatic speech recognition and its applications.Educational issues are brought to the forefront in Part 3 in such engrossing studies as the application of an instrumental-enrichment cognitive intervention program with deaf immigrant children from Ethiopia. Part 4 reviews progress in this area, research on the development of deaf and hearing children's sex-role attitudes and self-endorsements. These and the many other contributions by renowned international scholars in the field make Issues Unresolved a compelling new standard for all involved in deaf education.
