Abstract: The lack of convergence between word and action; research and practice; and perception and reality has long plagued the deaf child’s prospects for a quality, humane education and whole person development. Although the original intent of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) is timeless, things have evolved over time to today’s increasingly “one size fits all” approach which has been detrimental for the low incidence population of deaf children. Via the Child First campaign, CEASD and NAD are calling for a return to the original principle of the federal law. Dr. Stern will discuss socio-political, bio-ecological and educational themes to bring upon critical reform on behalf of today and tomorrow’s deaf children.
