Abstract:

This is the first book to consider both deaf and hearing perspectives on the dynamics of adult sibling relationships. Deaf and hearing authors Berkowitz and Jonas conducted individual open-ended interviews with 22 adult siblings, using ASL and spoken English, to access their intimate thoughts and experiences. A major feature is its analysis of how isolation impacts deaf-hearing sibling relationships. The book documents how the 150-year history of educational decisions and societal attitudes became embedded in sibling bonds, transforming their lives, and identifying how the siblings' lives were affected by choices their parents made about how to communicate with the deaf family member.
