Jones, Tom W., Jr., Ed.
Intended for those working with deaf blind children, the document discusses strategies for developing language. Information on objectives, materials, and methods are presented for 10 levels of language development: the nonresponsive child, the child with differentiated crying, the child who demonstrates "stimulus-response" behavior to situational cues, the child who pushes and pulls with situational cues, the child who pushes and pulls without situational cues, the child with inner language, the child who points and gestures, the child who uses signs, the child who uses preacademic language, and the child who uses academic language but has language problems.
