Overview

This book is a scholarly resource that provides guiding principles and strategies for early intervention professionals working with deaf and hard of hearing infants, toddlers, and preschoolers and their families. The book takes a family-centered approach and supplements its broad research base with concrete suggestions and vignettes illustrating the experiences of early interventionists and parents of deaf and hard of hearing young children. It emphasizes viewing young deaf children and their families within community, cultural, and linguistic frameworks in order to evaluate their needs appropriately and to enhance the quality of services provided to them. This book discusses language and literacy, family-centered services, legislation and policy considerations, program development and evaluation, and educational strategies for teaching young children who are deaf or hard of hearing. An appendix includes lists of useful resources and organizations with contact information and web addresses.
