Deafness and Reading/spelling processes

Abstract : It is well known that some deaf people use internal phonological codes (based on sensory information delivered by speechreading, residual hearing, cochlear implant) to guide their development in reading and spelling. Most of the evidence has been collected on deaf people exposed to oral language such as English, French, Italian, or Spanish. Given the specificities of oral and written chinese language, it would be interesting to develop a better understanding of how chinese deaf readers process written information. One obvious question is whether these deaf people also activate phonological information during reading and spelling activities.
