Increasingly, education requires that interventions be evidence-based. When I found this book by leaders in our field, Pat Spencer and Marc Marschark, I was thrilled to see the research base boiled down into very understandable nuggets that teachers can share with administrators and use to guide their practice.  I especially love the 5-page Key Findings Index that is in the front of the book that provides ‘sound bite’ summaries of the research findings. This book is a MUST for every DHH program and should be on the shelf of every administrator who oversees programmatic and individual decisions for students with hearing loss.  Karen Anderson, Director

Evidence-Based Practice in Educating
Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Students

  • A critical review of research, theory, and practice in deaf education
  • Includes information obtained from studies of students in oral, sign, cued speech, and other types of communication

In this critical evaluation of what we know and what we do not know about educating deaf and hard-of-hearing students, the authors examine a wide range of educational settings and research methods that have guided deaf education in recent years–or should. The book provides a focus for future educational and research efforts, and aims to promote optimal support for deaf and hard-of-hearing learners of all ages.

Co-authored by two of the most respected leaders in the field, this book summarizes and evaluates research findings across multiple disciplines pertaining to the raising and educating of deaf children, providing a comprehensive but concise record of the successes, failures, and unanswered questions in deaf education.
