Development of a Milieu Intervention Program for Treatment of Emotionally Disturbed Deaf Children.
Edelstein, Terry
Described is a milieu intervention scheme for treatment of disturbed deaf children (6 to 18 years old) in a residential school for the deaf. It is noted that the program sought to develop respect and awareness of the self and social group within the security of a specifically adapted environment and to support reintegration into the social, academic, and vocational mainstream. Implementation is reported to involve the development of a therapeutic milieu providing: (1) individual and small group intervention daily with the therapist, in a resource center; and (2) selected integration in the mainstream supported by weekly consultations with the integrating staff.
