The World of Deaf Infants

A Longitudinal Study

Kathryn P. Meadow-Orlans, Patricia Elizabeth Spencer, and Lynne Sanford Koester

Perspectives on Deafness

What is the impact of an infant's diminished hearing on the infant and its parents? How does communication develop in cases of diminished hearing? How does diminished hearing affect social and cognitive development? What types of early interventions can improve communication and development? The World of Deaf Infants presents the results of a 15-year research study that addresses these questions. Through their research, perhaps the largest long-term comparison of deaf and hearing infants, Meadow-Orlans' team provides a comprehensive and intimate look into the world of deaf infants.
