A Co-Design Project with Deaf Children
Hearing children have a multitude of sound-supported educational software products available both at home and at school to enhance learning. In contrast, there are few accessible interactive educational products to support learning for deaf children. In collaboration with Deaf children (ages 6-13) our research team (deaf and hearing) has designed fun, innovative products that use interactive technology to embed signed language and print skills practice within a technology-enhanced digital games environment. We hope you enjoy this collection of resources for the classroom, work, parenting, and daily life!
Over the last decade there has been considerable progress in understanding how young deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) bilingual learners deploy their dual language resources in learning to read.
The Co-Design Project
A ground-breaking design process bringing together Deaf children (ages 6-13), teachers of Deaf children, research scientists, interactive media developers, and graphic artists.
Lessons learned from our students continue to guide, inform, inspire, and transform our directions in research concerning language and literacy development in deaf dual language learners.
