This paper addresses issues related to developing the spoken English of deaf and hard of hearing children. The author is both a teacher and speech-language therapist at a school for the deaf and has extensive experience working with deaf and hard of hearing children. She discusses assessing a child's potential to develop speech, the complex factors that may influence speech development, and bilingual ASL/English strategies through natural interaction, teaching and practice, and communication within the community.
