Girgin, M. Cem
Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, v5 n3 Article 2 p6-11 Jul 2006
The aim of this presentation is to summarize the history of deaf education in Turkey. The problems that deaf students face in their educational life with special reference to higher education will be discussed. Properties of educational settings and university entrance requirements will be explained. Within this general concept, Anadolu University experience will be explained by giving two distinct but related provisions offered to deaf students in Turkey: Education and Research Centre for Hearing-Impaired Children (IÇEM) and Integrated College for the Disabled. IÇEM offers education from preschool to high school. The aim of the centre is to enable students to acquire spoken language skills in a natural language environment using aural/oral approach and to help prepare them to the university entrance examinations. Integrated College for the Disabled was founded in 1993 and offers two year pre-degree programs in computing and building construction and four year degree programs in ceramic arts and graphic arts. These two institutes will be introduced and their programs will be discussed.
