Papers from five plenary sessions and a number of sectional meetings consider oral education of the deaf. Elementary and secondary deaf education programs are discussed with reference to teaching the multiply handicapped, curriculum development, programed instruction, and teaching methods and materials. The following are also treated: the subject areas of mathematics, science, social studies, reading, music, and literature; the integration of deaf children into regular schools; and national program planning. Language achievement, motivation, development, and pathology are included, along with lipreading and linguistics, teaching methods, and current research. Early childhood education of the hearing impaired is considered in terms of the benefits derived by parents and infants; attitudes and feelings of the deaf and current needs in deaf education are discussed; and information is provided on parent wants and their current needs. Research activities in the Children's Bureau and Vocational Rehabilitation Administration are covered, as well as current educational trends in Japan and the United States. (JB)
