Al-Zboon, Eman K.
Early Child Development and Care, v187 n11 p1760-1770 2017
An appropriate curriculum for children with hearing impairments (HIs) is vital in establishing effective educational programmes for such children. This study aimed to describe the current status of the kindergarten (KG) curriculum for children with HIs in Jordan. Content analysis was applied to the curriculum plans and weekly schedules and in-depth interviews with 15 teachers were conducted. The findings revealed confusion and concern regarding the curriculum for children with HIs. One major recommendation is a comprehensive reform process to enhance the current state of the curriculum for children with HIs in Jordanian KGs.
