 Product Description

Living Between Sound and Silence

The term Mother Father Deaf" refers to the sign language phrase identifying hearing children who have deaf parents (CODAs or Children Of Deaf Adults).

In this powerful examination based on interviews with 150 hearing adults with deaf parents Preston presents the personal stories of this diverse group and in the process reveals the unique struggles of living between two cultures: Deaf and Hearing. Rather than attempting to identify dysfunction in such families Preston allows the individual stories family histories childhood memories and adult perspectives to paint a vivid picture of the experiences of being culturally deaf yet functionally hearing.

Mother father Deaf incorporates research findings from linguistics anthropology psychological development and sociology making it useful for educators researchers rehabilitation counselors and social workers. This is also an affirming book for any hearing adults with deaf parents as well as a must-read for anyone interested in deaf studies. [Paul Preston; (1994) 278 pages; soft cover]"
