A SURVEY OF VISUAL AIDS IN SCHOOLS AND CLASSES FOR THE DEAF IN THE UNITED STATES.
KUBIS, JOHN J.; SCHEIN, JEROME D.
INFORMATION CONCERNING VISUAL PRESENTATION DEVICES, THEIR USE IN THE EDUCATION OF THE DEAF, AND THEIR SPECIAL PROBLEMS WERE SURVEYED. QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO ALL SCHOOLS AND CLASSES FOR THE DEAF IN THE UNITED STATES DURING THE FALL SEMESTER OF 1961-62. THE RESPONSE WAS 55.9 PERCENT OF THE QUESTIONNAIRES MAILED. INTERVIEWS WERE HELD WITH A NUMBER OF SUPERINTENDENTS AND OTHER ADMINISTRATORS. PROGRAMS WERE RATED AND RESPONSES CODED TO ASSESS AND VALIDATE THE DATA RECEIVED. THE DATA REPRESENTED 73 PERCENT OF THE ENROLLED DEAF STUDENTS. THE SCHOOLS AND CLASSES WERE FOUND TO HAVE ADEQUATE FACILITIES AND FEW COMPLAINTS ON BUDGETS. VISUAL AID MATERIALS WERE SHOWN TO BE A PROBLEM AND SOMEWHAT SCARCE. ALSO, TEACHER TRAINING DESERVED CONSIDERATION FOR INSTRUCTION ON USE OF VISUAL AIDS. SUGGESTED APPROACHES TO THESE PROBLEMS ARE THAT WORKSHOPS BE PLANNED AND SUPPORT FOR BETTER MATERIALS BE REQUESTED. (RS)
