Stahlecker, James E., Ed.; And Others
Ten papers are presented from a 1984 conference on research priorities in deaf-blindness. Each of five areas is examined first with a review of the literature and second with priorities for future research, summarizing the recommendations of the 10-member group. Responses to questionnaires sent to rehabilitation counselors, university affiliated service centers, programs, and state rehabilitation directors were also incorporated. The following five broad areas were examined: (1) demographics and population characteristics research; (2) psychological, developmental, and clinical research; (3) educational and school-based research; (4) rehabilitation and job-skills development research; and (5) technological (aids and device development) research. Authors of the papers are as follows: Raymond J. Trybus, Douglas Watson, Myra Taff-Watson, STephen Barrett, Wanda Hicks, Asa De Matteo, James E. Stahlecker, Roger Freeman, John Reinman, Theresa Smith, Jan Writer, Steven Machalow, Paul Cotten, Steve Bolgrin, William H. Graves, Rod Ferrell, Lawrence A. Scadden, and Deborah Gilden. (CL)
