This collection of research in deafness and education will be of interest to UK and overseas readers alike. It addresses key aspects of current research in the UK within the areas of learning support, understanding progress and achievement, and interaction at home and at school. Its content will be of interest to a wide range of professionals: teachers, doctors, audiologists, habilitation staff, speech and language therapists; and academics such as lecturers and researchers. For students of deaf education and special educational needs, as well as some parents of deaf children, it will serve as a useful contemporary text. The editors' aim has been to make current and on-going research from a variety of disciplines accessible to this wide range of readers. Descriptions of research context and up-to-date referencing in each chapter will provide useful as sources and hints for further reading.
