Curriculum for Young Deaf Children.
Restaino, Lillian C. R.; And Others
Presented is a curriculum designed to provide the teacher of the young deaf child with learning disabilities with a description of developmental objectives and methods for fulfilling these objectives in the areas of gross motor development, sensory motor integration, visual analysis, attention and memory, and conceptualization. The objectives are based on assumptions such as, the deaf child with learning disabilities moves through stages of physical and cognitive development in the same sequence as normal children. Information in each of the five instructional areas consist of a sequence of broad instructional objectives and subordinate specific objectives defined in terms of the child's behavior, with activities and materials intended to help the child master the objectives included under the subordinate objective. The curriculum is arranged in an hierarchical manner, since the authors believe that the earliest levels of gross motor coordination need to be mastered before the finer skills of sensory motor integration can be performed successfully. Pictures and diagrams accompany the curriculum. (For related documents see also EC 041 647-9.) (CB)
