    Filed at 12:51 pm under by dcobranchi

    I’m trying struggling to teach myself ASL, so this announcment caught my eye:

    Are you a parent homeschooling your deaf or hard-of-hearing child(ren)? Would you like to see more parents and educators understand the experience of homeschooling a deaf/hard-of-hearing child? If so, I need your input!

    As a graduate student at Gallaudet University in the Deaf studies program, I am exploring homeschooling as practiced in the d/Deaf community. As a frequently overlooked option in deaf education, this study is designed to explore the experiences of homeschooling families, whether part-time or full-time, in order to educate others about the potential costs and benefits of homeschooling.

    This study will primarily be done through written questionnaires and face-to-face interviews that are designed to better understand, through the eyes of parents, the construction of the homeschool environment, the motivation of homeschooling parents, and the experiences of homeschoolers.

    If you believe you are a good fit for this study and are interested in becoming involved, or you would like to receive more information about this study, please contact me at Elizabeth.Parks@gallaudet.edu.
