April 25, 2022 (San Diego, CA) - Seeing Through New Eyes,
Deaf Culture and Deaf Pedagogies: The Unrecognized Curriculum releases this
week from publisher DawnSignPress.
Renowned author and
activist, Paddy Ladd’s highly anticipated book on Deaf Education focuses on the
contributions of Deaf educators. This tour-de-force examines the history of
Deaf education, brings the contributions of Deaf educators to the fore, and
codifies the hidden gems of Deaf educators’ wisdom into six levels of
development needed by Deaf students.
According to Ladd: “This
will be the very first book to focus fully on Deaf educators, saluting them.
It’s never been done before. There are many books on Deaf education written by
hearing authors; however, there are zero books up until now that focus solely
on Deaf educators written by a Deaf author.”
Producer, Joe Dannis, has a long relationship with Paddy Ladd and states: “This
is a historic moment for Deaf Education and for DSP. Paddy’s book shines a
light on the path toward Deaf-centered education for Deaf children and we are
thrilled to help bring this book to the world.”
To mark the long-awaited
book’s release, DawnSignPress will offer a copy signed by the author for the
first 50 individuals who purchase Seeing Through New Eyes, Deaf Culture and
Deaf Pedagogies: The Unrecognized Curriculum.
