Deaf Plus: A Multicultural Perspective


Deaf Plus: A Multicultural Perspective is a collection of essays providing information about the community that surrounds Deaf children from diverse backgrounds.  This community includes the children, their families, and teachers.  The belief proposed in that multiple cultures in the classroom are a positive thing, and diversity within Deaf culture is enriching and enhancing.  With that understanding, the text calls for critically important changes in teacher preparation to create the leadership needed as the community strives to best serve Deaf children.

Deaf Plus gives teachers, administrators, psychologist, social workers, and families with Deaf children insight into the multilingual and multicultural dimensions of the Deaf community.  It offers cultural information combined with recommendations for reform that will enhance the current educational dialogue.
