This chapter examines the shift of perspective that is required in order to elucidate how advances in vocalizations which occur as infants, deaf or hearing, begin to show a capacity to produce well-formed speech. Topics discussed include a historical perspective on obstacles to effective research on deaf infant babbling, myths regarding the babbling of deaf infants, modern perspective on vocalizations in infancy, the age of onset of canonical babbling in hearing and deaf infants, the importance of keeping track of severity of hearing loss, and recommendations about description of early vocalizations in deaf infants.
