Implications and Complications for Deaf Students
of the Full Inclusion Movement 1994
edited by Robert C. Johnson and Oscar P. Cohen
Occasional Paper 94-2
This 80-page publication, a collaboration between the Gallaudet Research Institute (GRI) and the Conference of Educational Administrators Serving the Deaf (CEASD), contains seven papers that examine problems associated with the inclusion of all deaf and hard of hearing students in regular education programs. Authors of the papers include researchers from the GRI as well as deaf and hearing educators of the deaf, members of professional deafness-related associations, researchers from the National Technical Institute for the Deaf (NTID), and others. While none of the papers advocates the elimination of inclusion as an option, all the papers discuss the potential negative consequences of making inclusion the only option for all deaf students. This document has already proved invaluable to deaf consumers, parents of deaf children, policymakers, and schools and programs serving deaf students.
