This book is the second edition of of a comprehensive guide to the questions and challenges involved in raising and educating a deaf child. The first edition was carefully objective, avoiding the pitfalls of both "political correctness" and "political bias" that plague many volumes in this field. Indeed, that edition was written at the personal request of Ed Barry, who was hoping for a book that he and his sister (the mother of a deaf child) could understand. The book is however, also being used as a required text in a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses around the country. The proposed second edition will bring readers up to date on some of the dramatic changes that have happened in the field over the past eight years, including Universal Newborn Hearing Screening, cochlear implants, increasing emphasis on inclusive education for deaf children, high-stakes testing, and significant advances in research concerning language and learning by deaf children (e.g. theory of mind, visuospatial processing, and cognitive underpinnings of educational interventions). By including spoken language, alternative language intervention programs, and more information on outcomes from various educational placement alternatives, this edition will correct oversights in the first edition. This edition will also include citations to the most important and potentially interesting references, and additional information that parents have been requesting from Marschark and his colleagues around the country.
