Team Approach in a Pre-school Unit for Deaf Children Study of Three Cases at St. Joseph’s School for the Deaf, Bronx, New York, 1956
Means of communication through the sense of hearing has been one of man's greatest assets throughout the years. As the deaf are cut off from this avenue of contact with their fellow man, other channels of communication must be devised. The teachers of the past and of the present have been concerned and have sought means of teaching lip-reading and speech to those who have been deprived of one of the most important sensory organs. The deaf have been the most isolated and neglected of all the physically handicapped. It is with gratitude that today great interest is being shown in their behalf so that they may be helped to overcome this problem of communication. Background and Timeliness of the Study. This thesis will deal with a description of St. Joseph's School for the Deaf, Bronx, New York. It will give the program for the pre-school child from an educational, physical and emotional viewpoint. It will attempt to show how the child is now treated from each of these viewpoints and how the present approach has evolved.
