 Product Description

This is the first book to consider both deaf and hearing perspectives on the dynamics of adult sibling relationships. Deaf and hearing authors Marla C. Berkowitz and Judith A. Jonas conducted interviews with 22 adult siblings using ASL and spoken English to access their intimate thoughts. A major feature of the book is its analysis of how isolation impacts deaf-hearing sibling relationships.

The authors weave information throughout the text to reveal attitudes toward American Sign Language and the various roles deaf and hearing siblings take on as monitors facilitators signing-siblings and sibling-interpreters all of which impact lifelong bonds. [Marla C. Berkowitz (Deaf author) and Judith A. Jonas (SODA - sibling of a deaf adult - author); Foreword by Martha A. Sheridan; (2014) 204 pages; soft cover]
