Cover Story (view full-size image): Deaf families in the US commonly use American Sign Language (ASL) rhyme and rhythm to support language acquisition. This cultural practice has emerged in some ASL–English bilingual early childhood classrooms. In this study, single-case design is used to examine five deaf children’s engagement and accuracy in recitation when exposed to videos of rhyming and non-rhyming ASL stories. It was discovered that deaf children enjoy signing along to rhyming and non-rhyming ASL stories with higher instances of this behavior in the rhyming condition. Deaf children also demonstrate higher accuracy in recitation in the rhyming condition after receiving ASL phonological awareness intervention. View this paper
