Promoting and Developing Deaf Children’s Literacy and Numeracy Skills – Oxford ProjectMain Speaker: Dr Diana Burman
|Diana Burman has taught the deaf for many years in many different settings, including mainstream and special schools, residential and day, using oral and total communication methods. She has taught students of all ages from pre-school to adult.
Diana’s doctoral thesis on the use of morphology to improve deaf children’s spelling and writing, won her the Michael Young Award, a reward for researchers whose work makes a difference to the lives of those beyond academia.
Diana is currently working at the Department of Education, University of Oxford, on a National Deaf Children’s Society funded research project aiming at improving deaf children’s literacy, numeracy and working memory skills.
