Summer 1975 Program for Deaf Children. Evaluation Period July 1 - August 8, 1975.
Michael, John A.
A summer program aimed at mastery of instructional objectives in reading and mathematics was provided for 110 deaf children (5-14 years old), many of whom were from non-English speaking or bilingual homes. Participants were administered, as a pretest, selected criterion-referenced tests from the Santa Clara Inventory of Developmental Tasks (Reading) and the BASE (Math) Systems to ascertain individual instructional objectives for each student. Findings showed that learning was nearly universal, with many profoundly handicapped children mastering an impressive number of instructional objectives; that the summer program was not a reiteration of previously mastered curriculum; and that there were no major departures from the program design.
