Survey of Health Education Curricula in Residential Schools for the Visually and Hearing Impaired.
Clark, Jeffrey K.
This survey sought to assess progress in implementing health education programs in state residential schools for the hearing and visually impaired, to assess the extent that comprehensive school health education is required, and to compare implementation of health education with implementation of Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) education. Of 50 schools responding (representing about 40% of possible respondents), 38 indicated that a comprehensive health instruction program existed. The majority of responding institutions reported that health education certification was not required for teaching elementary or secondary health education to visually or hearing impaired students. HIV/AIDS education was required in 76 percent of the responding schools. The majority of the schools began HIV/AIDS instruction at the sixth grade, with instruction most often given by a health educator. An appendix contains a copy of the survey form. (JDD)
