NEW METHODS OF LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT FOR DEAF CHILDREN.
ROY, HOWARD L.; AND OTHERS
SOME RECENT INNOVATIONS IN TEACHING LANGUAGE WERE INVESTIGATED. THE TECHNIQUES OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WERE MERGED WITH THE USE OF AN ELECTRIC TYPEWRITER TO PROVIDE THE MEANS OF TEACHING READING TO YOUNG DEAF CHILDREN. DEAF CHILDREN, RANGING IN AGE FROM THREE TO SEVEN YEARS, PARTICIPATED IN THIS STUDY. AS A GROUP, THEY TENDED TO BE OF AVERAGE INTELLIGENCE AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS. DEAF CHILDREN FROM THREE YEARS OF AGE CAN LEARN TO USE AN ELECTRIC TYPEWRITER WITHIN A VERY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION CAN PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN LANGUAGE, AND IT WOULD APPEAR THAT THE MOST SUCCESSFUL APPROACH FOR LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION TO THIS GROUP OF CHILDREN WOULD BE TO INCLUDE THE TYPEWRITER AS A PART OF THE LANGUAGE PROGRAM. SUCH A CURRICULUM WOULD COORDINATE LANGUAGE EXERCISES ON THE TYPEWRITER WITH CURRENT METHODS OF IMPARTING LANGUAGE TO THESE CHILDREN.
