I Am Thinking Of A Sen Education

- I was thinking of a SEN education as one of the many programs that were way too expensive for absolutely no reason, and that they neglected to push students academically; holding the students to low expectations, but I’ve learned that those were just common misconceptions when dealing with deaf education. Sending students who have a hearing disability to a Sen school allows them to be surrounded those who have similar needs, thus making them feel as though they do not appear different. The students would be able to be engaged with others in smaller class sizes with a curriculum that matched closely to their learning styles and strengths....   [tags: Deaf culture, Hearing impairment, Deafness]

Deaf Community Definition of "d/Deaf"

- The phrases deaf-mute, deaf and dumb are outdated and no longer acceptable. The majority of deaf individuals have the ability to speak, but choose not to use their voices. It is difficult for them to learn speech when they cannot hear sound, and they simply feel uncomfortable speaking. When we define "deaf", the parameters of the definition should be determined.

Bi-Bi: A Better Way to Educate the Deaf

- In America we have adopted an auditory-speech, which is a mono-linguistic focus on the spoken and written forms of the majority (English here) language, approach to educating our deaf children. We adopted this methodology for teaching the deaf because of the Milan Conference held in 1880. This conference was an excuse for those in favor of oralism to gain the support they needed to outlaw the use of signed language in education. Their plot succeeded; the conference decided that signed language was inferior to spoken languages and was not capable of allowing the kind of learning necessary (Lane, Hoffmeister, and Bahan 61)....   [tags: Special Education ]
