OUR FIRST 100 YEARS, HIGHLIGHTS OF CENTENNIAL TEACHERS INSTITUTE (MARYLAND SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF, FREDERICK, MARYLAND, MARCH 7-8, 1968).
Maryland State School for the Deaf, Frederick.
TWO SPEECHES PRESENTED AT THE CENTENNIAL TEACHERS INSTITUTE OF THE MARYLAND SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF IN MARCH 1968 ARE CONTAINED IN THIS BOOKLET ALONG WITH A SHORT HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL AND A LIST OF AGENCIES AND ORGANIZATIONS REPRESENTED. HELMER R. MYKLEBUST, IN "LEARNING AND EDUCATIONAL FAILURE IN DEAF CHILDREN--PSYCHONEUROLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS," STRESSES THAT THERE IS A NEUROLOGY AS WELL AS A PSYCHOLOGY OF LEARNING AND THAT THE DEAF CHILD IN EARLY LIFE MUST RELY ESSENTIALLY ON NONVERBAL LEARNING. MYKLEBUST ALSO DISCUSSES THE FUNCTIONS OF THE DIFFERENT HEMISPHERES OF THE BRAIN AND THE POSSIBILTY THAT THE BRAIN OF A DEAF PERSON HAS DIFFERENT HEMISPHERE DOMINANCE FROM THAT OF A HEARING PERSON. IMPLICATIONS FOR THE EDUCATION OF THE DEAF ARE CONSIDERED. IN "A DIAGNOSIS OF THE EDUCATION OF THE DEAF," BEN E. HOFFMEYER CONSIDERS THE PARENTAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, SOCIAL, AND ECONOMIC PRESSURES WHICH HAVE DICTATED THE APPROACH USED IN EDUCATING THE DEAF AND EMPHASIZES THE IMPORTANCE OF ACCOMODATING EDUCATIONAL PROCEDURES TO THE NEEDS OF THE DEAF.
