From the Back Cover:

With the advent of new medical advances, new technologies, and new educational opportunities, the field of deaf education is rapidly changing and evolving. Deaf Education in the 21st Century provides readers with an up-to-date look at research, the changing population of deaf and hard-of-hearing students, and what implications these discoveries and changes mean for educators, interpreters, service providers, and parents.

 

Features covered in Deaf Education in the 21st Century:

 

·        Information on myths and misconceptions about people who are deaf help students understand the issues and challenges that the deaf and hard of hearing population face each day

·        Multiple chapters focus on cognition and personal and social development and additionally offer students important information about deaf education that is not always included in introductory material.

·        A chapter that examines postsecondary opportunities and employment trends for the deaf and hard-of-hearing

·        Several chapters discussing the impact of cochlear implants on language and literacy help students understand this new and complex development in deaf education.

·        Extensive coverage on preparing personnel to serve individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing offers unique information, not often found in other texts, about what educators, interpreters and social service providers need to know and do to successfully work with the deaf population.
