This article summarizes research on cognitive development in Deaf children. Some deaf children do not learn language during the first few years of their life. This can permanently harm their ability to learn language. However, even a deaf child with limited language skill has average cognitive development in other areas. Exposing a deaf child to language very early in life can help them learn better language skills.
