Rhythmic movement in deaf children.
To measure the rhythmic body rocking of deaf preadolescents, 320 deaf and hard of hearing students between the ages of 5 yr., 2 mo. and 16 yr., 5 mo. were observed. Data indicate that body rocking was exhibited at a significantly high level and was age-related. Rhythmic movements of the deaf are discussed and related to other areas of development.
