|Other Titles:||The 9[90bb] Asia Pacific Congress on Deafness|
National Taiwan Normal University Special Education Center
The 9th Asia Pacific Congress on Deafness (APCD) holding in Japan in October, 2006 had come to the end. There were 1200 delegates from 17 countries attending the APCD. Fifteen representatives (1.25%) were from Taiwan and presented 24 papers (12.6%). Delegates from all over Asia were aware of the progress and current status of the hearing impaired education in Taiwan through various reports presented in different sessions. It counterbalanced to a certain degree and offset the regret that our national representative was not invited to report at the plenary session. Chinzan-so was a historical and natural garden built in 1878. It gave the delegates a taste of the cultural side of Japan. The visit to the school of the deaf which is affiliated to Tsukuba University had surprised us that students had to defeat others to get into it and a lot of them preferred to go to this school than to attend regular schools. The new techniques of screening and diagnosing hearing impairment as well as cochlear implant do not promise its leading role in rehabilitation. The disputes between oral and sign were still going on in many countries. To overcome the difficulty of the status of our country in the international conference, it is encouraged that all delegates present as many papers as possible to make other delegates be aware of the progress of our country.
