State Schools for the Deaf and Blind: A View from the Local Education Agency.
Kellogg, Robert C.
A survey was developed and administered to local education agency directors of special education regarding the future role of state schools for students with sensory impairments. Questions touched upon resources/curriculum, supervision, evaluation, satellite programs, and non-typical deaf and visually handicapped students. Regarding schools for the deaf, respondents rated the following items as significant needs: outreach teacher visits, provision of media resources, program coordination assistance, student evaluation (particularly audiological evaluations), and services for multi-handicapped students. Results for schools for the visually impaired closely paralleled the survey results for the deaf, suggesting among other needs, the importance of schools for the visually impaired to provide vision evaluations, services for the visually impaired/multihandicapped students, and assistance in individualized education program development.
