Reading Difficulty Among Deaf Students

   Many educators, including that of our school, are concerned about the effectiveness  of signed language in providing a bridge to reading. Obviously, never having heard sounds makes it much harder for the congenitally and profoundly deaf to learn to read English much more so Filipino language. That fact that the average deaf high school graduate is only able to read at a fourth-grade level demonstrates the difficulty a deaf person can experience (Conrad, 1979). 

Our speaker: Miss Bea Francisco - Leadership and Involvement Program Coordinator
   So how do the deaf read? Are signed and spoken language equivalent to academic settings? How do they recognized printed words? How do they associate their signs when they asked to write an English or Filipino sentence?
