The deaf population of the United States by Jerome Daniel Schein( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented are data from the National Census of the Deaf Population (ncdp) which gathered information on the size, geographic distribution, and characteristics of the deaf population of the U.S. The population studied is defined as those persons who could not hear and understand speech and who had lost (or never had) that ability prior to 19 years of age. The first chapter provides an introduction and overview of results of the census. Six chapters analyze the deaf population under the following topics: size, distribution, and salient characteristics; civil status, family composition, and fertility; education and communication; occupation; economic status; and morbidity and mortality. Chapter 7 explains the design and execution of the survey. Appendixes include a list of organizations and individuals who contributed names to the ncdp (arranged by state); a summary of a special meeting on problems of identifying the black deaf population; observations on sample design for the ncdp; and an interviewer's manual for the ncdp.

Needs assessment of services to deaf-blind individuals : final report by Enid G Wolf-Schein( Book )

5 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of 33 administrators, 62 teachers, and 44 parents of deaf-blind children, and interviews with 50 deaf-blind adults were analyzed to determine the services needed by this population and to examine demographic characteristics. Demographic factors (age, sex, institutionalization, and geographic distribution) are reviewed, and varying definitions of deaf-blindness are cited. Descriptions of the type and range of services offered are provided and gaps in service delivery are identified, including lack of staff skill in the more sophisticated communication methods (such as fingerspelling or signing). Concerns were voiced by federal officials and state and local administrators over funding, especially when programs are called upon to service increasing numbers of deaf-blind persons with additional severe disabilities. Teachers expressed dissatisfaction with their preparation and predicted low level accomplishments for the students. Parents, for their part, were pessimistic about their children's future development. Deaf-blind adults indicated vocational preparation, communication training, and financial aid as the top three desired services, with social life and recreation most frequently cited as a problem. Data and relevant literature are summarized according to 14 topics, including the education process, the habilitation/rehabilitation process, and alternative living arrangements. A final chapter offers recommendations, including the need for a continued federal presence in the education of deaf-blind youth and for parent education and respite care. (Cl)
