Teaching Deaf Learners

Program Teaching Deaf Learners 2019

Book: evidence-based practices in deaf education

The conference Teaching Deaf Learners (TDL) results from the 2014 volume Teaching Deaf Learners: Psychological and Developmental Foundations (Oxford University Press), written by the conference organizers. This book explores how deaf students (children and adolescents) learn and the conditions that support their reaching their full cognitive potential — or not.
