ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lamar University - Beaumont
The purpose of this study was to formulate and conduct a needs assessment identifying which present factors may contribute to the implementation of a bilingual education program using Jamaican Sign Language and Jamaican Standard English (JEBE) at The Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf, a non-governmental school serving deaf children in Jamaica. The purpose of this study was to: (1) explore the potential this program has to transition to bilingual education methodology, (2) identify key elements of language planning, and (3) develop a strategic plan for review in consideration of transition and implementation to a JSL/English bilingual program at The Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf. Program evaluation techniques were used to conduct a needs assessment and strategic recommendations were made.
