Readings on Deafness.
Watson, Douglas, Ed.
Presented are 15 articles on the experience of deafness, deaf education, the improvement of the delivery of rehabilitation services, or the deaf community. The first section on important life experiences and thinking from an existential viewpoint consists of five articles with the following titles: "A Truly Silent Majority'', "Just Like Real People" (on the rearing of the deaf child), "Les Miserables" (on life in a residential school for the deaf), "How Do You Dance Without Music?" (an account of life through the eyes of a deaf individual), and "The Meaning of Deafness" (a discussion of related handicaps such as communication difficulties). Article titles on deaf education are "Crises of the Deaf Child and His Family", "Why Can't Johnny Show Me the Ball?" (on the need for curriculum research and development), "Total Communication at Maryland School for the Deaf", and "Notes on a Little Red Schoolhouse" (a diary of progress in a new day class). The improvement of rehabilitation services is discussed in three articles: "Delivery of Community Services to Deaf Persons", "Potential, Achievement, and Rehabilitation in the Deaf Population"; and "The Psychological Evaluation of Prelingually Deaf Adults". The final section focuses on the deaf community in three articles: "Organizations Serving the Deaf", "Interpreting Services for Deaf People", and "Deaf People in the World of Work". (DB)
