A Demonstration Home Training Program for Parents of Preschool Deaf Children. Final Report.
Miller, June B.
Methods for teaching parents techniques for stimulating audition and language development in their deaf infants were explored over a 3-year period. Families were seen individually at the University of Kansas Medical Center by teachers of the deaf. Techniques were demonstrated for the correlating of hearing and language development with home activities. Additional instruction was given to parents in large and small groups. Videotapes were used as one method of instruction and evaluation. Findings indicated the feasibility of videotaping as an objective evaluation method, while differences in subjective opinion and objective evidence of progress suggest a further need for pinpointing levels of change. Recommendations were made concerning procedures for parent education, sequence of instruction, and program content. (Author/KW)
