What’s it like to be a young Deaf college student at a Deaf university? Gallaudet isn’t just a school – it’s the center of the American Deaf community. Here’s why there’s so much more to being Deaf than you think.
The purpose of the Science of Learning Center at Gallaudet University on “Visual Language and Visual Learning (VL2)” is to advance the Science of Learning specifically involving how aspects of human higher cognition are realized through one of our most central senses, vision. We seek to determine the effects of visual processes, visual language, and social experience on the development of cognition, language, reading, and literacy for the benefit of all humans. We especially pursue new perspectives on these learning processes through the widened vantage point of studying deaf individuals and sign language as a window into the flexibility and structure of the human mind. We study these learning processes in monolinguals and bilinguals across the lifespan in order to promote optimal practices in education in both formal and informal settings.
This department provides technical assistance to and monitoring of local educational agency (LEA) operated programs serving people who are deaf and hard of hearing.
