Pegasus Project for the Hearing-Impaired.
Krahe, Jane M.
The Pegasus Project offered nine gifted hearing impaired students (11-15 years old) a summer enrichment experience with hearing peers. Courses included computer programming, literature, fine arts, physical and biological sciences, math enrichment, and sign language. All hearing impaired students also attended a special class on issues for the hearing impaired; this course explored deaf history, considered traits of productive deaf adults, and considered other relevant issues in the field of hearing impairment. Opportunities were provided for integration between hearing impaired and hearing students. The program was viewed by staff, students, and parents as highly successful, with a good level of interaction and acceptance among students. Hearing impaired students were found to need additional work in written language. (CL)
