Two-Year Study of Northwest Regional Center's Summer Sessions for Preschool, Rubella, Deaf-Blind Children. Final Report.
The report describes the Summer Sessions for Preschool, Rubella, Deaf-Blind Children conducted in 1970 and 1971 by the Northwest Regional Center for Deaf-Blind Children in Vancouver, Washington. The summer programs were primarily designed to evaluate preschool deaf-blind children in a learning and living situation. The report is intended not only to describe the short-term evaluative programs, but also to show how a coordinated program may be organized, administered, and evaluated. Described are program objectives and the learning station concept upon which the program was based. The calendar of events for the 1971 program is included. Detailed are the methods of description and evaluation utilized as well as the process of forming recommendations for children. Outlined are the objectives and procedures of the five learning stations (Specialized areas of training and evaluation), which focused on communication skills, experience training, self help skills, physical development, and social skills. Briefly described are the residential station and medical diagnostic and evaluative services. Recommendations deal with program extensions and improved descriptive and assessment techniques. (KW)
