Initiating Reform in Total Communication Programs.
Stewart, David A.
Journal of Special Education, v26 n1 p68-84 Spr 1992
This paper proposes new policies which stress making explicit the roles of sign communication and speech in total communication programs for students with hearing impairments. A review of the literature supports the need to redefine total communication, provide improved preservice and in-service training of teachers in effective communication strategies, and restructure teacher certification.
