Curriculum Guide for Preprimary Hearing-Impaired Children 3-6 Years of Age.
Minnesota State Dept. of Education, St. Paul.; Minnesota Univ., Minneapolis.
The lengthy and detailed curriculum guide is said to form a basis for stimulating development of the young hearing impaired child (age 3 to 6 years) in all aspects of growth. The systematic presentation of the content is thought to help the child integrate into his whole personality the oral communication skills that permit him to function in his environment. Initial topics presented in the guide are educational goals and support factors; neurological and motor, cognitive and emotional-social development of child, aged 30 to 36 months and of child aged 3 to 6 years; and the cognitive approach according to Jean Piaget, modified for pre-primary hearing impaired children. The first curricular unit contains nursery level through grade one activities on expanding concepts through social studies and science. Examined next are the sequential stages in the development of language. The second major unit focuses on developing concepts and skills in reading. Discussion of sequential stages in the development of mathematic concepts then follows. A short section on the sequential stages in the development of speech precedes the unit on dimensions of speech development for the hearing impaired. A brief section on auditory training concludes the guide. (CB)
