Mainstreaming the Hearing Impaired Child: A Parent's Experience. Montessori and Some Comparisons.
Schwartzberg, Joanne G.
The mother of an 11-year-old deaf child compares her daughter's experiences mainstreamed in a traditional school system (a Hebrew school) and in a Montessori school. The Montessori system is seen to be especially advantageous for the deaf child because of the following characteristics: opportunities for the child to be successful, a visual (rather than verbal) form of education, individualized education, informal teaching styles, no group lessons, a commitment to social education, opportunities for the deaf child to be useful and helpful, and provision of remedial education (such as language therapy).
