Severely Handicapped Deaf People: A Perspective for Program Administrators and Planners.
Stewart, Larry G., Ed.
The monograph offers three papers presented at a 1978 symposium in Arizona entitled "Foundations of Rehabilitation Planning with Deaf Persons who are Severely Handicapped." The keynote address by Ralph White presents an overview of what can and should be happening with the severely handicapped deaf population, considering such questions as who the severely handicapped are, what it requires to rehabilitate them, who is responsible for providing services to them, and whether there is a real commitment to their rehabilitation. "Services for Severely Handicaped Deaf Persons" by Dale Williamson, examines the current status of services for the severely handicapped deaf within the perspective of historical and contemporary events at the state and national levels. "The Severely Handicapped Deaf Population" by Larry Stewart, defines that population, describes its characteristics, lists its needs, describes what is being done to help the population, and outlines future possibilities for improving services for these children and adults.
