The Granville Invitational Work Conference on Hearing Handicapped Children in Ohio (Granville, Ohio).
Jones, Christina C., Ed.
The proceedings from an interdisciplinary work conference, sponsored by the Ohio Division of Special Education to utilize information from 5 years of an ongoing study (1960-65), include three papers and several discussion summaries. Papers on hearing handicapped and deaf children consider implications for medical services; audiological evaluation, including testing, services, theory, and treatment; and educational programs involving individual instruction, supervision of teachers, and a total plan for preschool to adulthood with continuous curriculum planning, parent guidance, and vocational education. Reports of the discussion groups include recommendations concerning the child population, instructional programs, personnel and staff, and research and evaluation. A followup conference was planned for December 1966. (JB)
