(p.283) 13 Social Relations of Deaf Learners
Educating Deaf Learners

Oxford University Press

Strong social relations give us emotional support and help us know who we are and where we belong. They also help us to manage academic challenges. Since social relations depend on communicative exchange, deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children are disadvantaged from the start in their social relations. This chapter looks at what research tells us about the challenges that face DHH students in general and the challenges they must manage at school in order to live a happy life. Classroom participation of DHH students at general education schools as well as at special schools for the DHH may play a crucial role. The chapter also reviews the challenges that face those who live and work with these children. Recommendations are given as to how parents, teachers, and peers can support the well-being of DHH children, including opportunities to assess their social relations within educational settings.
