In recent years, educators have placed more and more emphasis on the importance of reading. If reading is this important, especially for the deaf child, why should it be postponed until he begins his formal education? The purpose of this paper is to investigate early reading and its advantages for the young deaf child. In this paper the writer will discuss the following questions: What is reading? What are the pre-requisites for reading? At what age are children ready to read? What advantages does early reading offer the deaf child? How can reading be taught to the very young deaf child?
