The Sociomoral Reasoning and Behaviour of Deaf Children

Journal of Moral Education 22 (2):157-166 (1993)
There is no scientific evidence that the sociomoral reasoning or behaviour of deaf children is different from that of their hearing peers. In spite of this Markoulis and Christoforou advocate, at the end of their study of congenitally deaf children, the need for “restructuring the children's interaction and activities in order to provide developmentally appropriate opportunities for sociomoral development”. The literature on the development of the conscience and sociomoral reasoning of deaf school children and adults is reviewed. The conclusion is that there are no data that show the deaf to be different from their hearing peers, although some writers have made such unsupported claims
