Why in the world would I want to incorporate the oral only method into my cousel and advise to my students, their parents, or other educators. It does harm to deaf students. The deaf students entrusted to me are receiving ALL of the services they need to succeed simply becasue I do not reccommend the limiting oral philosophy for them.
How is it that you know that jackie's daughter has not achieved the full level of her potential? Got a crystal ball in your pocket along with your stun gun?
I know that my daughter has not achieved her full potential. Her IQ is 2 standard deviations above the norm. She works really hard for her grades. What average student spends 2 to 6 hours a day on school work everyday. On most of her state tests, she falls in the below average range. These are clear signs she is not reaching her full potential.
