American Sign Language and Early Literacy|
A Model Parent-Child Program
From The Midwest Book Review
American Sign Language and Early Literacy: A Model Parent-Child Program by Kristin Snoddon is a 144-page compendium deftly describing a program for developing parental ‘literacy’ in utilizing America Sign Language to develop a child’s sense of identity, culture, and vernacular language. Informed and informative chapters include ASL and Early Intervention; Discourse and Counterdiscourse; Research as Praxis; ASL as Resource; ‘A Deaf Cultural Space’, and Facilitating Emergent ASL Literacy. Enhanced with the inclusion of a substantial bibliography, extensive ‘author’s notes’, and a comprehensive index, American Sign Language and Early Literacy is a seminal contribution to ASL studies and highly recommended for personal, professional, and academic library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.
Kristin Snoddon is an assistant professor in the School of Linguistics and Language Studies at Carleton University in Canada.
