A FOLLOW-UP STUDY OF GRADUATES OF THE SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF. STUDIES OF CHILDREN WITH PHYSICAL HANDICAPS, NUMBER 7.
JUSTMAN, JOSEPH; MOSKOWITZ, SUE
A QUESTIONNAIRE OF 129 ITEMS (MOSTLY MULTIPLE CHOICE OR SHORT ANSWER) WAS SENT TO FORMER STUDENTS WHO WERE GRADUATED BETWEEN 1908 AND 1958 FROM THE SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF (JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL 47 MANHATTAN) IN NEW YORK CITY. THE QUESTIONNAIRE GATHERED INFORMATION ON FAMILY BACKGROUND, SCHOOL HISTORY, OCCUPATION, HEARING AND SPEECH, LEISURE TIME ACTIVITIES, AND SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS. RESPONSES RECEIVED FROM 646 GRADUATES ARE COMPILED IN 70 TABLES. RESULTS INDICATE THAT THE AVERAGE GRADUATE HAS AN ADEQUATE JOB, LIKES HIS JOB, HAS BOTH DEAF AND HEARING FRIENDS AND FELLOW EMPLOYEES, HAS IMPROVED IN SPEECH AND LIPREADING, COMMUNICATES WITH OTHERS, AND LIKES LEISURE TIME ACTIVITIES SIMILAR TO THOSE OF HEARING PEOPLE. RECENT GRADUATES APPEAR TO BE BETTER ADJUSTED THAN OLDER GRADUATES. (MY)
