Deaf and Hearing Siblings in Conversation

Deaf and Hearing Siblings in Conversation By Marla C Berkowitz and Judith A Jonas
2014 | 213 Pages | ISBN: 078647825X | PDF | 1 MB

This is the first book to consider both deaf and hearing perspectives on the dynamics of adult sibling relationships. Deaf and hearing authors Berkowitz and Jonas conducted individual open-ended interviews with 22 adult sibling dyads or triads, using ASL and spoken English, to access their intimate thoughts and experiences. The book documents how the 150-year history of educational decisions and societal attitudes became imbedded in sibling bonds, transforming their lives, and identifies how the siblings' lives were affected by choices their parents made about how to communicate with the deaf family member.
