Additional Products and Publications
The Clerc Center offers several publications available for downloading. This page lists each publication, categorized by type, and provides links to the web page or the PDF file of the publication.
The “Sharing Ideas” series comprises working or occasional papers of interest to parents and professionals working with deaf and hard of hearing children. Works in the series are often prepared for a specific ‘occasion’ and include papers, presentations, or final reports that address a need in the field or contribute to the growing body of knowledge about educating deaf and hard of hearing children. The intent of the series is to act as a clearinghouse for sharing information from a number of sources.
