Raising and Educating Deaf Children: Foundations for Policy, Practice, and Outcomes

Educating Deaf Children

This collaboration with Oxford University Press will provide objective, evidence-based information for policy-making and practice associated with raising and educating deaf children, with an eye to improving them. The Editors (Marc Marschark, Director of CERP and Louis Abbate, President Emeritus of Willie Ross School for the Deaf) aim to reach a broad community of stakeholders, professionals, practitioners, policy-makers, and other parties interested in optimizing opportunities – and futures – for deaf children. Raising and Educating Deaf Children will be hosted on a special website created by Oxford University Press linked to sites of the Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education and The site will publish 4-6 short “policy and practice bulletins” each quarter. Topic categories will include policies, procedures, and regulations associated with school placement; language and communication; learning and academic outcomes; the continuum of educational placements and services; technology innovation; and more. The bulletins will be available free of charge and will be disseminated to governmental, educational, academic, and other audiences through a variety of outlets.
