Proceedings of a Conference to Develop a Rationale for Higher Education for Deaf-Blind Persons.
Murphy, Harry J., Ed.
Presented are the proceedings of a 1975 conference on higher education for deaf blind persons which emphasized ways to raise the level of expectation that society and educators hold for the deaf blind. Noted are various communication methods used during the conference including platform interpreting (for the deaf) and the Tadoma method, fingerspelling into the hand, and use of the Braille typewriter for the deaf blind. Included are the texts of the opening address by R. Jones, and presentations with the following titles: "An Educational Bill of Rights for Deaf Blind Persons" (by F. Laski); "Strategies for Increasing Educational Opportunities for Deaf Blind Persons" (by R. Kinney); and "Personal Experiences of Deaf Blind Persons" (By R. Joy, Jr. and S. Ehrlich). Summarized are two group discussions on forces driving toward positive change and restraining forces. (DB)
