Introduction to Communication.
Model Secondary School for the Deaf, Washington, DC.
The curriculum was developed to help hearing impaired high school students understand hearing loss and its effects on communication skills as well as to develop strategies and find resources for building communication skills. Course materials are divided into six sections: (1) sound and hearing (concepts of sound, the anatomy and physiology of the hearing mechanism, causes of hearing loss, and audiograms); (2) hearing aids (styles, use, and care); (3) speechreading (components of the speechreading process and strategies to facilitate communication); (4) interpersonal communication (components of the communication process and interaction strategies); (5) communication devices and support services (telecommunications, signal devices, and interpreting services); (6) deaf awareness (current and historical perspectives on deafness and education of the deaf). Each instructional unit follows a format which covers objectives, an introductory activity, instructional methods, practice activities, and evaluation. (DB)
