Raising and Educating a Deaf Child

Raising and Educating a Deaf Child was the name of a book aimed at parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. This website with the same name is a resource for parents, much as the book was. The author of the book is a major presence on the website. This site offers information that is evidence-based and peer-reviewed. The website offers a place for parents, educators, and interested family, friends, or professionals to submit questions related to any Deaf/HOH issue. Answers are provided by staff at NTID (National Technical Institute for the Deaf) and the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, and international experts on deafness. Information and answers can be found in the areas of Cochlear Implants, Deaf Culture, Education and Educational Technology for the Deaf, Hearing and Deafness, Language and Communication, and Social, Emotional, and Behavioral Development. This is a great resource for parents and educators, including interpreters. http://www.rit.edu/ntid/educatingdeafchildren/
