Abstract

This study examines strategies used for repair in conversations between a deaf child and her SLT and teacher and the changes in strategies used by the child over time. An overview of previous literature relating to deaf children's language acquisition, deaf children with English as an additional language, classroom interaction and conversational repair is given. Fragments from three different video recordings in which breakdowns occur in conversation are examined in detail, drawing on some of the insights gained into the management of repair by researchers working in the tradition of conversation analysis. The development of the child's conversational competence in dyadic interactions is discussed, in particular the strategies used by the child to resolve misunderstandings. The SLT and teachers repair strategies and their role in facilitating the emergence of conversational skills in the deaf child are also considered and some helpful strategies for managing repair in conversation with a deaf child are found.
