EDUCATION OF THE DEAF, A REPORT TO THE SECRETARY OF HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE BY HIS ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON THE EDUCATION OF THE DEAF.
BIBBIDGE, HOMER D. JR.; AND OTHERS
THE UNSATISFACTORY STATE OF EDUCATION FOR THE DEAF IS A RESULT OF THE LACK OF PROGRAMS ASSAULTING PROBLEMS OF COMMUNICATION AND OF LANGUAGE LEARNING OF THE DEAF, LACK OF WELL PLANNED AND ADEQUATELY SUPPORTED RESEARCH, AND THE FAILURE TO DEVELOP SYSTEMATIC AND ADEQUATE PROGRAMS FOR EDUCATING THE DEAF AT ALL LEVELS. EARLY DETECTION AND EARLY ATTENTION TO THE PROBLEMS OF LANGUAGE AND SPEECH PREPARATION ARE NECESSARY. THE CHANGING OCCUPATIONAL OUTLOOK REQUIRES THE DEAF TO ATTAIN NEW HEIGHTS IN EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT. FEDERAL FUNDS SHOULD BE AUTHORIZED FOR REGIONAL IND INTERSTATE PLANNING, DEMONSTRATION PROGRAMS LASTING 5-10 YEARS AND INCLUDING NEW AND MORE WIDESPREAD COURSES OF STUDY SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED IN EXISTING SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF, IN FUTURE SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF, AND IN CLASSES FOR THE ADULT DEAF. ADDITIONAL SUPPORT SHOULD BE GIVEN TO GALLAUDET COLLEGE TO IMPROVE ITS ACADEMIC STATUS, THE TYPE AND NUMBER OF COURSES, THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY OF TEACHERS AND STUDENTS. A CONTINUING NATIONAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE SHOULD BE SET UP TO GATHER INFORMATION, TO ASSESS PROGRESS, TO IDENTIFY PROBLEMS, TO SUGGEST INNOVATIONS, AND TO DIRECT RESEARCH EFFORTS. THE APPENDIX INCLUDES A SPECIAL STUDY ON THE OBJECTIVES OF AN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM FOR THE DEAF, HISTORICAL BACKGROUND, AND A STUDY OF EUROPEAN PROGRAMS FOR THE DEAF.
