Comparing performance on Sign Language tasks in deaf preschool age children with a delay

by Jamie Brunette
  The Visual Communication and Sign Language (VCSL) checklist is one of the only standardized assessments for children developing a visual language. We employed the VCSL to compare performance of deaf children with a basal age delay of at least 24 months on particularly difficult items. This analysis led us to multiple difficult items for children of deaf parents, and for both groups together, but it only yielded one difficult item for children of hearing parents.
