Gallaudet University Child Development Center's Model Integration Program.
Griffin, Abbey; And Others
This paper describes the Gallaudet University Child Development Center (an early childhood program serving the children of university staff, faculty, and students), focusing on its model integration program at the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School (District of Columbia). The program uses a "split placement" model to promote integrative socialization experiences through regular, part-time interaction between deaf Kendall School children and hearing children at the Child Development Center. The program demonstrates use of campus school and academic department resources to provide necessary special services to children, families, and early childhood professionals. The program seeks to develop an effective interagency cooperative model for the provision of services to deaf children within a child care setting; and to design and implement an educational, social, language-rich, integrated preschool curriculum. Program objectives, essential program components, teaching strategies, and potential nationwide target population are discussed. (22 references) (PB)
