National Advisory Committee on Education of the Deaf, Washington, DC.
The 1973 annual report of the National Advisory Committee on Education of the Deaf includes priority recommendations and a review of Federal programs for the deaf. An included letter of transmission notes committee members' disapproval of the proposed abolishment of the committee. Major recommendations include provision of an individualized program of instruction for all ages, early educational programs for deaf infants and their families, and a program of career education. Discussed in the section on the status of education for the deaf are incidence statistics, the importance of early education, and the need for State and Federal governments to finance and operate programs for the deaf. Among activities and programs reviewed are special institutions such as Kendall Demonstration Elementary School and the Model Secondary School for the Deaf, the need for programs for the deaf mentally retarded, and the development of a center on performing arts for the handicapped.
