A Handbook of Readings in Education of the Deaf and Postschool Implications.
Fusfeld, Irving S., Ed.
Articles ranging from medical and technical aspects of deafness to its social and psychological implications are included in the collection. Discussed are the basic principles of educating the deaf and a history of that education, the causes of hearing loss in children, the necessity of early assessment, and some current trends and problems in education. Further presentations concern preschool training, the types of school organization and child placement, several aspects of school programs (including academic subjects), the development and problems of communication, the accomplishments and training of teachers, aspects of auditory amplification in actual use, vocational preparation, guidance services, and the role of the family in education. Attention is also given to the appraisal of problems, the difficulties of multiply handicapped children, psychological considerations, research, rehabilitation, and prospects after formal education is completed.
