The Deaf Education Program in Sherwood Elementary School.
This case study focuses on a deaf education program for elementary students. Four deaf classes categorized as Kindergarten, Primary I (paralleling first grade), Primary II (second and third grades), and Elementary (fourth, fifth, and sixth grades) are described, and one student from each of the classes is focused upon to illustrate the program's effectiveness. Descriptions of classroom interactions are provided, as well as comments from the teachers. Attitudes of regular class teachers largely support mainstreaming as an enrichment of the regular program. Comments of the principal and of deaf education teachers are also offered, and some difficulties in communication among parents and school personnel and BOCES (Board of Cooperative Educational Services) administrators and teachers are noted. The importance of inservice training for regular class teachers is emphasized. (CL)
