Deaf Students and the Qualitative Similarity Hypothesis: Understanding Language and Literacy Development is a college-level recommendation for any working with deaf and hard of hearing students, and uses the latest research to link deaf student language and learning skills with hearing student strategies. It presents the Qualitative Similarity Hypothesis to describe this process, documents its theory and research findings, and provides important educational insights for any working with deaf students. It’s a technical study recommended for both educators and any who would understand the basics of how deaf students learn and acquire literacy skills in the world of the hearing.
