Reviews What Should I Do Now? Problems and Adaptations of the Deafened Adult, Helen Sloss Luey, M. A. and Myra S. Per-Lee, M.Α., 27 pp., paperback, Gallaudet College, 7th and Florida Ave., NE, Washington, DC 20002, 1983. Much of the contents of What Should I Do Now? first appeared as Between Worlds: The Problems of Deafened Adults by Helen Sloss Luey and was published in Social Work in Health Care, Vol. 5, 3, Spring 1980, Haworth Press. Now, with a new title and an additional author, Myra S. Per-Lee, the work has been published by the National Academy of Gallaudet College. Designed to help people who become deaf as adults, the book takes a look at persons who have shared that experience with the authors. What Should I Do Now? is sharply focused. There are 1.5 million adults who have experienced a dramatic and complete loss of hearing. Deafened adults are different from prelingually deaf people and from hard of hearing people. Products of a hearing culture, they can no longer use hearing for communication, and they do not have the advantage of the unity of a deaf community . The book describes the crisis of hearing loss, examines the many emotional reactions, and offers constructive observations. The section on the process of adaptation focuses on communication skills and technical devices, along with hearing guide dogs, which are available for use. The authors stress that with all these facilities the deafened person needs more—to find another person with whom he or she can relate. What Should I Do Now? is a constructive, helpful book for deafened adults, a group often neglected in the more intense focus on prelingual deafness.
