The 19th International Congress on Education of the Deaf (ICED) in 2000, held in Sydney, Australia, brought together 1,067 teachers, administrators and researchers from 46 countries to address an extremely wide selection of topics. Experts from around the world discussed inclusion of deaf students in regular educational environments, literacy, audiology, auditory development and listening programs, hearing aids, programming for children with cochlear implants, signed communication in education, bilingual education, early intervention (including the rapidly emerging area of newborn hearing screening), education in developing countries, deaf students with multiple disabilities, and deaf students in postsecondary school education.

The 19 chapters of Educating Deaf Students: Global Perspectives present a select cross-section of the issues addressed at the 19th ICED. Divided into four distinct parts Contemporary Issues for all Learners, The Early Years, The School Years, and Contemporary Issues in Postsecondary Education the themes considered here span the entire student age range. Authored by 27 different researchers and practitioners from six different countries, this book can be seen as a valuable description of the zeitgeist in the field of education of the deaf at the turn of the 21st century and the millennium.

Des Power is Emeritus Professor at the Centre for Deafness Studies and Research, Griffith University, Southport, Queensland, Australia.

Greg Leigh is Assistant Chief Executive (Educational Services), Royal Institute for the Deaf and Blind Children, and Associate Professor, University of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia.
