Mainstreaming the Deaf

Page history last edited by Constance Cooper 14 years, 11 months ago

          Mainstreaming is a approach used to intergrate children with special needs into the general classroom. This approach has pro's and con's. Although, the use of mainstreaming programs depends directly upon the students preference for learning. Research shows that  the practice of mainstreaming deaf students increases their chances of becoming average or above average students. The deaf community has concerns with mainstreaming programs because they feel they create communication difficulties. The lack of certified interpreters is also a problem.
