Curriculum Development for Young Deaf Children with Specific Learning Disabilities (Ages 4-8).
Restaino, Lillian C. R.; Socher, Penny A.
The CREED 4 Project, the fourth of a continuing series, had as its objective the development of activities and materials for the remediation of deficits found in deaf children (ages 4-8 years) with special learning problems and who had been administered the battery of tests developed in CREED 3, designed to assess five critical areas. A sample of 22 classes from the 11 schools for the deaf in New York State participated in the project. Both typical and learning disabled deaf children were included. Instructional procedures and materials were selected for the five skill areas of gross motor coordination, sensory-motor integration, visual analysis, attention and memory, and conceptualization. Sequential levels of instruction were developed, as was a teacher's guide. The program was subjected to pilot trial in the field and then evaluated by the administration of the CREED 3 Test Battery to participating classes, and by rating forms, written narratives, and discussion from both teachers and observers. Included are the evaluation results, on the basis of which recommendations are made for program modifications related to the variables of interest, level of mastery, validity of sequence, relevance, and practicality.
