Anderson, Valerie K.; Schwartz, Candy L.
The service plan provides guidelines for a mainstreamed hearing impaired program. Terms are defined and job descriptions for a hearing impaired teacher, aide, interpreter, and speech pathologist are presented. The referral system, including the diagnostic procedures, are outlined as well as placement procedures. Program placement alternatives, such as self contained classrooms, are identified. Procedures for dismissal from the program and the consultative services available are described. Evaluation methods for students, staff, and the general program are recounted, and the following six program objectives--auditory training, speech reading, communication (oral or manual), language development, social development, and curriculum modification--and the specific objectives of each are listed. Over half of the document consists of appendixes such as the summer school proposal, brochures for parents, progress reports, forms, and letters. (PHR)
