From Library Bookwatch, an official newsletter of The Midwest Book Review

David A. Stewart and Bryan R. Clarke are two dedicated teachers with years of experience working with deaf children. In Literacy and Your Deaf Child: What Every Parent Should Know, Stewart and Clarke effectively collaborate to create an instructional guide specifically appropriate for parents of deaf and hard-of-hearing children who want to do everything they can to ensure their hearing-impaired child learns to read and write with fluency and competence. Also discussed are the practices and issues of hearing aids, cochlear implants, speech reading, and sign communication. Emphasizing the developmental link between American Sign Language and English literacy for children who learn and use it, Literacy and Your Deaf Child is an excellent informational and guide volume and is very highly recommended for anyone who works with hearing-disabled children.

David A. Stewart is Professor in the Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Special Education at Michigan State University in East Lansing, MI.

Byran R. Clarke, Professor Emeritus, is former Professor and Head of the Educational Psychology and Special Education Department at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada.
