University Habilitation of Young Hard of Hearing Adults. Progress Report, August 20, 1968-August 31, 1969.
Berg, Frederick S.
Since 1965, Utah State University (USU) has been developing special programs for moderately and severely hard-of-hearing individuals as distinct from deaf persons. For the 1968-69 academic year, a pilot project was established for 16 students.This project of educational audiology was designed to explore the educational resources of USU, compare hard-of-hearing and hearing students, and compare hard-of-hearing students at USU and Gallaudet College. An analysis was also made of course features and classroom acoustics that facilitated learning. Experience with the program showed that it was feasible to develop an institute for the hard of hearing at a regular university, and that administrative, faculty, and student sources were available to help with the pilot project. A proposal has been made to continue the program for 5 years. (BC)
