Description of Internship at the Gallaudet College School of Preparatory Studies.
Gill, Wanda E.
The report presents findings from an internship at Gallaudet College and its programs for deaf and hearing impaired students. The paper touches on the history of Gallaudet College, the functions of Gallaudet's International Center on Deafness and the National Academy, which offers training to communities on facilities for deaf and disabled people. The Gallaudet College Preparatory Studies Program, designed to increase the likelihood that students accepted to Gallaudet will be retained and graduated, is reviewed as are the components of the Peer Advisory Program, the Academic Development Team (ADT), and the Tutorial Center. The roles of peer advisors in counseling, advising, administration, and limit setting are reviewed. The ADT features collaborative planning to monitor development in personal identity, interpersonal skills, academic skills, aesthetic development, and physical-recreational skills. The Tutorial Center offers services on a walk-in and appointment basis. Academic policies of Gallaudet are considered. A final section presents a summary of information gathered from the internship, including a list of other postsecondary programs for deaf students, an analysis of the communication controversy, a description of the spring, 1984 International Symposium on Deafness, a synopsis of other research on the deaf, and a seven-page bibliography.
