Children with Speech and Hearing Impairment: Preparing to Work with Them in the Schools. Bulletin, 1959, No. 5

Office of Education, US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare
This bulletin is about the inspiring opportunities for rewarding service to be found in meeting the urgent educational needs of children with impaired speech and hearing. If these children are not to carry serious economic and social disadvantages into their adult years, more remedial speech and hearing teachers must be trained to serve them. Moreover, if these teachers are to be prepared as effectively as possible and if their services are to be of greatest value, comprehensive and intensive research must be devoted to children's speech and hearing problems. Finally, if the approximately 1.5 million school-age speech and hearing handicapped children are to be reached with the necessary services, school programs must be more extensive. These are the needs and the opportunities with which this bulletin is concerned. Material is presented in five parts: (1) The problem of impaired speech and hearing; (2) Prevalence and definition of types of impaired speech and hearing; (3) What can be done in the schools for children with impaired speech and hearing; (4) An urgent need: an inspiring opportunity; and (5) the high adventure of research. Appended are professional training resources and sources of additional information. (Contains 8 footnotes and 2 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
