A Constant Struggle - Deaf Education in New South Wales since World War II

A Constant Struggle - Deaf Education in New South Wales since World War II

Author: Naomi Malone Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 02/07/2019

Deaf education in New South Wales has made tremendous progress since the end of World War II, yet issues remain for students from their early years of education through secondary high school. Naomi Malone traces the roots of these issues and argues that they persist due to the historical fragmentation within deaf education regarding oralism (teaching via spoken language) and manualism (teaching via sign language). She considers the early prevalence of oralism in schools for deaf students, the integration of deaf students into mainstream classrooms, the recognition of Australian Sign Language as a language, and the growing awareness of the diversity of deaf students. Malone's historical assessments are augmented by interviews with former students and contextualized with explanations of concurrent political and social events. She posits that deaf people must be consulted about their educational experiences and that they must form a united social movement to better advocate for improved deaf education, regardless of communication approach.

Transition by Design Improving Equity and Outcomes for Adolescents with Disabilities

Transition by Design Improving Equity and Outcomes for Adolescents with Disabilities

Author: Audrey A. Trainor Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/06/2019

Transitions to adulthood for adolescents with disabilities are as diverse as the adolescents themselves. While there have been marked improvements for students with disabilities, there is still concern that employment education and independent living outcomes are not equitable across groups of students. For example, adolescents of color are more likely to face exclusionary discipline procedures in school resulting in detention and court involvement which, in turn, can limit access to educational opportunities in inclusive settings. Recommending a shift toward strengths-based approaches to research and practice, Trainor explores how all stakeholders, including researchers and practitioners, can help shape equitable opportunities for youth with disabilities in transition. Transition by Design reframes disability, diversity, and equity during the transition from high school to adulthood. Book Features: uses a unique theoretical framework in transition: cultivating a culture of practice; lays out an in-depth examination of the school-to-prison pipeline as a major issue in transition; examines health status and healthcare access issues relative to transition; calls for culturally responsive approaches to research by exposing the limitations of intervention methods and holes in the extant literature.
