The Planning, Implementation, Financing, and Management of Continuing Education Programs for Deaf Adults. Tricks of the Trade.
Luke, Robert A.; Boggs, Carol
Suggestions are offered to adult educators for developing programs and obtaining funding for deaf education. The first seven chapters deal with program development. In chapter 1 demographics which relate to the hearing impaired are examined. (A million and three-quarters of Americans are severely or profoundly deaf.) Chapter 2 discusses deaf learning needs and assessment methods; sample questionnaires are included. Chapter 3 focuses on promotional techniques for programs and includes sample forms. In chapter 4 ways of finding and supporting teachers and interpreters are suggested. Chapter 5 documents adult basic education needs for the deaf (only one-third of the deaf population has a high school diploma); programs and materials are suggested. Chapter 6 outlines the advisory committee's make-up and functions. In chapter 7 steps in planning, implementing, and administering deaf education programs are reviewed. The remaining chapters focus on funding. Chapter 8 discusses financing resources and requirements. Local funding possibilities are examined in chapter 9, and state and federal funding sources are listed in chapter 10. Chapter 11 lists foundation-supported projects and discusses funding criteria.
