From The Midwest Book Review

Turing the Tide: Making Life Better for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Schoolchildren comes from authors who both experienced being the only deaf student in a regular school. They became educators and studied deaf and hard of hearing students in these schools, interviewing in three different regions of the country and examining issues ranging from socialization to K–12 interpreting and programs for deaf students. They added comments from interpreters, educators and parents and used this information to provide ideas on improving schools for all deaf children. Turning the Tide is an important survey, highly recommended for any[one] involved with the deaf community and its needs.

Gina A. Oliva is a former professor in the Department of Physical Education and Recreation at Gallaudet University.
