About the Author

Harry Knoors is a professor at the Behavioral Science Institute of the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and general director Knowledge & Innovation at Royal Dutch Kentalis. Knoors is trained as a psycholinguist, specializing in language and literacy of deaf children. He is involved in research on childhood deafness (mainly language, literacy, and psychosocial development) and research on the effectiveness of special education. Marc Marschark is a Professor at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, a college of Rochester Institute of Technology, where he directs the Center for Education Research Partnerships. His research focuses on language comprehension and learning by deaf children and adults in formal and informal educational settings.


"[The book] recognises that deaf children's development is no longer educationally the sole responsibility of specialist staff but instead a partnership between mainstream teachers and qualified TODs. As such it provides an excellent entry point into the world of deaf teaching for the interested newbie, and a good tool for teachers of the deaf to use in developing the understanding of their colleagues. Indeed, TODs will welcome the way the book breaks down evidence-based practice into manageable sections which can each be taken as the core of a training session or professional discussion. It will provide a valuable resource for both teachers of the deaf and mainstream teachers too." -Hannah Birch, review in Deafness & Education International
