Målet med konferansen var å identifisere hovedtrekk i de mest sentrale diskursene innenfor feltet og se muligheter for utvikling av nye diskurser for pedagoger og andre som er involvert i hørselshemmede elevers oppvekst. Tverrfaglige bredde og spredning i tematikk – fra skole til arbeidsliv – gir mange innspill til barnas opplæringssituasjon og livsløp. Artiklene er på engelsk. Redaktører for artikkelsamlingen er Merv Hyde and Grete Høie.
The chapters in this book are the reviewed and edited keynote presentations from the 7th International Conference hosted by the Skådalen Resource Centre and the Department of Special Needs Education in Oslo, March 19th and 20th, 2007.
The conference was designed to engage researchers, professionals and parents on essential contemporary issues related to the education of the deaf children and their transitions into adulthood. The authors therefore spread over the fields of education, medicine, philosophy, psychology, social anthropology and linguistics – covering many of the issues that are relevant growing up with a hearing loss.
The aim of the conference was to trace and identify some of the main features of existing and emerging educational discourse(s), their affiliations with other prevailing discourses and the development and articulation of coherent and useful discourses for educators and other stakeholders concerned with the educational development of deaf learners.
This publication will be of interest to a range of individuals including, teachers, parents, researchers, sign linguists, speech and language therapists, teacher educators and those working in the fields of audiology and auditory education.
