AUDIOLOGY AND EDUCATION OF THE DEAF, A RESEARCH PROJECT AND TRAINING MANUAL SPONSORED BY THE JOINT COMMITTEE ON AUDIOLOGY AND EDUCATION OF THE DEAF.
VENTRY, IRA M.
TO IMPROVE UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN AUDIOLOGISTS AND EDUCATORS OF THE DEAF, THE AMERICAN SPEECH AND HEARING ASSOCIATION AND THE CONFERENCE OF EXECUTIVES OF AMERICAN SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF SPONSORED A TWO YEAR PROJECT. FIVE DIFFERENT QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO SPEECH AND HEARING CENTERS, SCHOOLS FOR THE DEAF, TEACHERS OF THE DEAF, AND AUDIOLOGISTS. THE SURVEYS WERE DESIGNED TO--(1) ASSESS THE AMOUNT OF AUDIOLOGY IN TEACHER OF THE DEAF TRAINING PROGRAMS AND EDUCATION IN AUDIOLOGY TRAINING PROGRAMS, (2) DETERMINE TYPES OF AUDIOLOGIC SERVICES PROVIDED THE DEAF IN SPEECH AND HEARING CLINICS AND IN EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR THE DEAF, AND (3) EXAMINE THE ATTITUDES OF AUDIOLOGISTS AND TEACHERS TOWARD THEIR TRAINING AND TOWARD EACH OTHER. THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AUDIOLOGY AND EDUCATION OF THE DEAF WHICH MET IN DECEMBER 1964 FORMULATED 29 SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS DEALING WITH IMPROVEMENT IN TRAINING, SERVICES, AND INTERPROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THE LAST PHASE OF THE PROJECT WAS A REGIONAL MEETING HELD IN WHITE PLAINS, NEW YORK, TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF OTHER REGIONAL MEETINGS. THE GENERAL CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM THE PROJECT WERE--(1) THERE SHOULD BE A GREATER EMPHASIS ON DEAF EDUCATION IN AUDIOLOGY TRAINING PROGRAMS AND A GREATER EMPHASIS ON AUDIOLOGY IN TEACHER OF THE DEAF TRAINING PROGRAMS, (2) INCREASED COOPERATION BETWEEN AUDIOLOGISTS AND TEACHERS OF THE DEAF IS NECESSARY AT ALL REHABILITATION FACILITIES TO IMPROVE AUDIOLOGIC SERVICES FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS. APPENDIXES PRESENT THE FIVE QUESTIONNAIRES USED, A LIST OF PARTICIPANTS, AND A LIST OF RESOLUTIONS ACTED UPON AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON AUDIOLOGY AND EDUCATION OF THE DEAF. SIX REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. (HK)
