Problems and Programs in the Education of Multiply Disabled Deaf Children.
Power, Desmond J.; Quigley, Stephen P.
The multiple disabilities, both remediable and adjustable, which may be associated with deafness are defined and comments are offered on the trend away from the "medical model." Incidence figures for the various disabilities are given, and the problems of diagnosis and ascertainment of the educational needs of each individual are considered. Current programs for the multiply handicapped deaf are discussed in terms of preschool, school, and post-school programs and recommendations are made in regard to teachers, ancillary personnel, and prevention.
