Counseling the Hearing Impaired Child in the Public Schools: Techniques and Strategies.
Brooks, Dianne K.
One of the most far-reaching results of the passage of the Education of All Handicapped Children Act (P.L. 94-142, signed into law November 29, 1975) is the increase in the number of deaf children being mainstreamed into regular public school programs. This increase in deaf children in public school programs will demand not only modification of existing academic programs to permit equal program accessibility to the deaf child, but also the development and implementation of appropriate support service systems. It is anticipated that the school counselor will emerge as the key support system for the deaf child attending a public school program. This increasingly important function of the counselor will necessitate an understanding of the specific social and psychological needs of the deaf child, and the strategies that may be employed to meet these needs. An overview of the social and psychological needs of the deaf child attending the public school system is provided. Suggestions and strategies for counseling and "outreach" support activities are offered. (Author)
