VL2 3/10/11 Lieberman Eye Gaze and Attention in Deaf Children's Early Years

Loading the player...

An essential component of communicating in a visual language is an understanding of how to direct eye gaze to people and objects in the environment. Deaf children must develop cognitive control of attention at a young age by learning how to alternate gaze, respond to bids for attention, and successfully initiate interactions with others. Dr. Amy Lieberman will discuss her research on deaf children's early development of visual-attention and related skills in both home and preschool settings, and its implications for the development of language and literacy.
