The Deaf Experience: Classics in Language and Education
Harlan L. Lane
Harvard University Press, Jan 1, 1984 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 221 pages
'The deaf experience' shows clearly how the extraordinary era of French deaf education influenced the adoption of the manual method by the first schools for deaf students in America, in sharp contrast to the oral movement that repressed sign-language-centered education for nearly a century afterward. Deaf studies scholars and students alike will welcome the return of this invaluable resource.
