Excerpt
It has bng been recognized that a child with impaired hearing presents special educational problems, particularly if the handicap is severe and speech and language development are also affected. Provisions for the care and training of children with hearing handicaps have existed in a number of countries for many years, but the services and faciIities provided were mainly for children old enough to attend school. Until comparatively recently, the conventional system of training was based on the conception that if a child had not developed speech, such hearing as he might have was of relatively little importance in enabling him to acquire speech. The child was therefore trained either by manual methods (signs and fingler-spelling) or by the oral method (Up reading and speech instruction using vision and touch ).
