A Proposed Plan for the Improvement of the Education of the Deaf and Severly Hard of Hearing in California.
Hayes, Gordon M.; Griffing, Barry L.
Recommendations are made for the improvement of the education of the deaf and severely hard of hearing in California. Minimum essentials for preschool, elementary, junior and senior high school programs are listed, including class size, criteria for admission, teacher-supervisor qualifications and ratio, curriculum, physical facilities, guidance programs, geographical location, extracurricular activities, and relationships to the state school for the deaf. Recommendations for deaf and hard of hearing in regular classes involve bases for assignments and withdrawal, teacher qualifications, supporting services, and areas and methods for statewide program evaluation. Recommended testing instruments are listed. Suggestions for the vocational-technical program include who should participate, at what age, program content, the role of state vocational rehabilitation services, and benefits of a post-high school training facility. Additional recommendations made concern curriculum, facilities, equipment, and materials for children with multiple handicaps; and admission, transfer, and dismissal mechanics (including recordkeeping).
