Improved Techniques of Communication: A Training Manual for Use with Severely Handicapped Deaf Clients.
Hoemann, Harry W., Ed.
The manual attempts to bring changes into the way in which manual communication is currently used by deaf adults or in some schools for the deaf, in order to bring manual communication into a closer parallel to the English language so that signs can be used to teach English to the language handicapped deaf person and particularly to adult rehabilitation clients. Commonly used signs are refined or new ones created. A prescriptive dictionary for improved manual communication, with drawings of signs, constitutes the major portion of the document. Two other chapters discuss increasing the compatibility between sign language and English, and techniques for using improved manual communication as a language training tool. (KW)
