Postsecondary Program for Sensory Impaired, 1989-1990. Interpreters Manual, Parents' Manual, Student Handbook, and Faculty Handbook.
Easterbrooks, Susan R., Ed.; Miller, Daniel L., Ed.
Four handbooks from the Jacksonville State University (Alabama) Postsecondary Program for Sensory Impaired are brought together: an interpreters' manual, parents' manual, student handbook, and faculty handbook. The interpreters' manual offers guidelines and clarifies the expectations and responsibilities of interpreters/transliterators, who play a critical role in mainstreaming hearing impaired students in one or more classes. The manual contains a statement of philosophy and mission as well as information on hiring procedures, orientation, assignment to classes, the interpreter's role, interpreter ethics, student tests, student absence, and interpreter's health and professional growth, and includes forms for evaluating interpreters. The parents' manual contains a brief history of the program, an explanation of its philosophy and mission, a statement of student responsibility, and a description of the levels of service offered. The student manual provides similar information, with more detailed information about student responsibilities involved in preparing for classes and using notetaker support, tutoring support, interpreter support, reader support, and technical equipment. The faculty handbook offers suggestions for classroom procedures for students with hearing or visual impairments. The suggestions cover: seating, notetaking, use of audiovisual materials, classroom participation, texts, assignments, field trips, internships, and testing. A glossary and a short bibliography are appended. (JDD)
