A Parent-Centered Nursery Program for Pre-School Deaf Children. Final Report.
Luterman, David M.
A nursery program for 48 deaf children aged from 1 1/2 to 3 years required active participation of the parents. Parents selected the program, tutored their and other children, observed behavior in the nursery which included hearing children, and participated in discussion of family problems. In followup, about three-fourths of the children and of their parents were rated above average by classroom teachers of the deaf. However, these results may have been due to the passive admission procedures. Parents who were not middle class seeking or who had severe personal problems did not appear to benefit. Those who were became active lobbyists for deaf children in the state. (Author/JD)
