Current, evidence based practices in teaching literacy for Deaf/Hard of Hearing students. The book provides practitioners and parents with a process for determining whether a practice is or is not “evidence-based.” The authors describe the importance of the assessment process in providing on-going progress monitoring to document students’ literacy growth as a primary means to direct the course of instruction. Includes a focus on the five key areas of instruction as identified by the National Reading Panel: phonemic awareness, phonics. fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
