Our Forgotten Children: Hard-of-Hearing Pupils in the Schools.
Davis, Julia, Ed.
The book provides an overview of the problems and needs of hard of hearing children, the personnel necessary for adequate support services, and the role of teacher training. The five chapter book was designed to give guidelines for administrators and educators. Chapter 1 (by M. Ross), "Definitions and Descriptions", defines the terms hearing impaired, deaf, and hard of hearing and describes the special needs of these children. In chapter 2 (S. Barton) "The Educational Environment", mainstreaming, community involvement, and self esteem are discussed. "Personnel and Services" is the title of chapter 3 (J. Davis) which covers identification and follow-up, the roles of regular and special educators, and service and placement options. Chapter 4 (J. Davis and L. Murphy) is entitled"Personnel Preparation for Services to the Hard of Hearing" and lists competencies needed by school personnel, as well as suggestions for modification to teacher education programs, among others. Chapter 5 (J. Davis) stresses the "Need for Research". (PHR)
