From the Journal of Social Work Education

While much attention has been focused on the educational development of deaf children, little time has been spent on the study of deaf children�s self-concepts and social development. The author of this book seeks to correct this oversight with a series of interviews with deaf children between the ages of 7 and 10 using a consistent procedure. This procedure includes standardized questions, asking the child to draw a picture based on his or her life and tell a story about it, and showing pictures clipped from a magazine and asking the child to describe what he or she sees. In addition to the sections on each child�s interview, the author offers chapters that introduce the project and present analysis of the findings.

Martha Sheridan is Professor, Department of Social Work, Gallaudet University, Washington, DC.
