Over the past 5 years Magnolia Speech School for the Deaf has been developing a program for the gifted pre-school aged hearing-impaired child. The three main features of the program are natural language development, intensive auditory training, and early introduction of academic subjects. Educational media plays an important part in language teaching and auditory training. The use of various types of media is explored. Since the inception of the program, 80% of these children have been mainstreamed into the first or second grades at or near the age of their hearing peers.
