Language Comprehension and Learning by Deaf Students

Language Comprehension and Learning by Deaf Students

(p.309) Chapter 12 Language Comprehension and Learning by Deaf Students
Deaf Cognition

Marc Marschark

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the possibility that interactions between language comprehension and cognition underlie the differences and challenges observed in learning by deaf students at a more basic level than has been considered previously. It argues that in addition to the need to understand individual differences and the cognitive tools underlying learning, basic issues of language and cognition must be understood and resolved to optimize educational opportunities for deaf students.
