From Reference & Research Book News
Editor Christensen (School of Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences, San Diego State University) presents a framework for ethical decision making, based on a situation ethics approach, for making decisions regarding the education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. The essays collected here are organized in sections on parental decisions, educational decisions, and interpretation decisions. Some specific subjects examined include residential schools for deaf students, ethical considerations in language choices, ethical assessment approaches, and perceptions of the efficacy of sign language interpreters working in K-12 settings. The book concludes with a justification of the benefits of a “both/and” approach to the education of deaf students and an outline of the editor's model for “eventual bilingualism.”
