What is the most effective mode for developing deaf literacy? This issue is not new and has been the subject of much heated debate. Previous research showed that oral communication or simultaneous communication is not necessarily effective enough in resolving the problem of low reading abilities among deaf children. Recently, the emergence of sign linguistics research has led educators to reasses the language of communication in deaf classroom learning situations, in particular, the role of natural sign language in developing deaf literacy in a written, spoken language.
