Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 36 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, Octobvr 24, 1973 Deaf children integrated in experimental program WINNIPEG (CP) A phonic ear and an "en- vironmental microphone" are the tools used at Gladstone School in an experimental program aimed at integrating 11 children with severe hear- ing defects into the regular school program. The two specialists who teach the children, Carol Chatfield and Josie Karpa, say their approach will help the children lead a more nor- mal life by making it easier for them to communicate with non-deaf people. The children are learning to use oral language instead of the sign language generally taught to the deaf. "The main emphasis in our program is to teach the children Miss Chatfield said. "We start with what the students know and go from there." The children are equipped with a phonic ear. which is, in effect, an FM radio tuned into the teacher's microphone Electronic signals are sent through it and the children not in the same way most people do. USE SPECIAL CODE "They each have a special code which they use to in- terpret the signals and it THE BETTER HALF seems to work." Miss Chat- field said "They also use lip reading." The children also have the "environmental microphone" which picks up voices theirs and others Speech therapist Marien Neild from the Child Guidance Clinic works with the children daily "It's a long, slow process teaching deaf children to she said. "The English language is difficult enough for people who have no hearing problem." School principal Ivan Biblow said the most impor- tant aspect of the program is that the children are treated in the same way as the 264 other students. "We try to integrate the 11 students into the regular classes as much as possible so that they learn to pick up key words and put them together to make conversation with the other children." Parents were the real in- stigators of the program, he said. "They organized, petitioned the school board and the government, and, as a result, got their program." Initially funded for two years, the program has been extended another year. By then. Mr. Biblow said, its successes will probably be so obvious that it will become permanent.

Social work behind times in status, accountability EDMONTON (CP) -Social work is about 50 years behind the times in protecting professional status and public accountability, Anthony Gray, executive director of the Canadian Association of Social Workers, said here. "As it stands now, in private practice anybody or everybody can consider themselves a social worker for instance, anyone could go ahead and set themselves up as a marriage he told the Alberta Association of Social Workers. Legislation should be enacted making registration with a provincial association of social workers mandatory, he said. The association would set standards for qualifications, fees and ethics, and would police these standards Mr. Gray added that admis- sion policies at universities and colleges should be revised to upgrade -qualifications of practising social workers. "Of the people doing social work in Canada, about have a qualified background in terms of a un- iversity degree. It would be more beneficial for schools of social work to take people who are already working in the field for retraining than to accept those without ex- perience." As one step towards regulating social workers, the Canadian Association of Social Workers is establishing a national private prac- titioners committee, headed by Percy Royal, president of the Alberta Association. The committee will for- mulate a national registration system similar to that currently used by the Alberta association said Mr Grav. Under the Alberta system, social workers are required to follow a fee schedule and must be prepared for review by a committee However, registration with the association is not man- datory and the provincial association is lobbying the government for legislation to make registration of social workers compulsory Bedroom no place for government CALGARY (CP) Canada's abortion law is tragic and criminal and should be repealed to allow women freedom of choice on the issue, Eleanor Wright Pelrine, author of Abortion in Canada, said here. She told a public seminar the present abortion law removes the freedom of choice from women who want abortions and places the deci- sion in the hands of medical tribunals She predicted only of the abor- tions performed in Canada next year will be legal. This meant at least "back- street" or "self-induced" abortions would be performed due to the restrictive laws now in force "They tell me the situation in Calgary is not too she said. "But in many areas of Quebec, the Maritimes, smaller cities in Ontario and in northern British Columbia, medical tribunals on abortion have not even been es- tablished." As the law now stands only a woman who is articulate and determined to demand her rights can get an abortion, she said. The law favors women with money who can get to a sympathetic specialist and discriminates against the poor. In mourning Vancouver status of Women members wear black veils to mourns the Canadian Bill of Rights in a demonstration which protested the Supreme Court ruling against Indian women who lose their status rights by marrying non-Indian men. Because an Indian man marrying a non-Indian woman retains his rights, the group claims dis- crimination against women. The Grab Bag by Maureen Jamieson AN older woman usually has a better chance than a younger one of adjusting to life following a divorce, in the opinion of Louise Athearn, author of The Divorcee's Handbook. Mrs. Athearn credits her own two divorces and her present successful marriage with teaching her how to teach others to make the most of the single life. She has found divorcees of all ages worry about the same things: where to live, whether to work, finances, loneliness and how to meet men. However, older women are freer to make adjustments because they are seldom anchored with young children. After the divorce, Mrs. Athearn observes, the first thing a woman has to tell herself is "I am single and what I do with my life and how it develops from this point is up to me. "You must get over the no- tion that your life begins and ends with a she says, "and develop a calm attitude because fear impedes progress and there's absolute- ly nothing to fear." When living and income arrangements are solved, Mrs. Athearn says loneliness is probably the new divorcee's biggest problem. "Loneliness never leaves. You have to cure it and fill it. You must keep yourself active and busy and in the mainstream of she warns. "And keep in touch with all people, whether they're men or women. Louise Athearn's first divorce came after 12 years of marriage and four children. She sought companionship at night school, taking courses like folk dancing, wood- working, Spanish. "It's a worthwhile she concludes, "because if you make yourself a more in- teresting person, you will attract more interesting people." She wrote her com- monsense guide to divorce as Louise Rohner, which was her name at the time. Meat sauce is the perfect beginning for many a delicious pasta dish. Here is a recipe that is simple yet marvellously flavorful, spiced with oregano, basil, thyme, bay leaf and garlic salt which is a gentle way to in- clude garlic in any dish. (Half a teaspoon of garlic salt is the equivalent of one medium size clove of garlic crushed, but when garlic salt is used in a recipe, the amount of ordinary salt should be reduced accordingly.)
