about this item
Deaf People and Society is the only textbook to comprehensively cover psychology, mental health, education, linguistics, and hearing issues as they pertain to deaf people. Rather than a clinical perspective, it takes a psychosocial approach to examining deaf culture. This second edition includes expanded perspectives of multicultural groups and new coverage of cognition, neuroscience, bimodal/bilingualism, and education technology. Featuring original case studies, the authors demonstrate their expertise in cross-disciplinary research and practice.
