This presentation is an ASL adaptation of the material I presented at the 2016 AAAS Conference in Washington, D.C. as part of the Bilingualism Matters symposium, convened by Karen Emmorey.  I identify four barriers to bilingualism in deaf children and argue that each is based on a faulty interpretation of existing data and/or a gap in knowledge that more recent research has filled. 

Two Languages Are Better Than None: In Support of Bimodal Bilingualism for Deaf Children

Advocates of Listening and Spoken Language often say things like, "Most CI users score in the average range on speech and language skills".  Advocates of Bimodal Bilingualism often say things like, "On average, CI users score significantly worse than their hearing peers or test norms."  If you've ever wondered how these statements can both be true, this video is for you!  Presented with captions and English voiceover.
