Communication with the Hearing Impaired.
Oregon State School for the Deaf, Salem.; Oregon State Univ., Corvallis.
This manual, which is intended to accompany a series of video tapes, is designed to provide a basic sign vocabulary for use by hearing persons in communicating with the deaf. The manual consists of an introduction, explanation of the illustrated signs, seventeen lessons, and an alphabetical index of signs. Each lesson in the manual contains an alphabetical vocabulary list, a story text, a second text with test questions and answers, and the illustrated sign for each vocabulary word. Used in conjunction with the video tape, the student would learn both to identify and to sign each word through a process of watching, practicing, writing and self-testing. At the end of the seventeen lessons, a vocabulary of more than 600 words would be acquired. The video tapes can be obtained from the Director, Oregon State School for the Deaf, Oregon State Department of Education, 999 Locust St., N.E., Salem, Oregon 97310. (CK)
