Deaf and Dumb in England and Wales

Nature volume 131, page 580 (22 April 1933) | Download Citation



THE National Institute for the Deaf has issued a memorandum commenting upon a report by the late Dr. Eichholz to the Minister of Health and the President of the Board of Education on “A Study of the Deaf in England and Wales, 1930 to 1932”. It is considered that the proposals contained in the report are inadequate to meet the needs of the deaf and dumb and of those who become deaf through disease or accident. Disappointment is expressed with regard to some of the proposals, and suggestions are made which it is considered would better the position, though it is realised that it may be impossible at present to incur fresh expenditures upon the work necessary to ensure the well-being of these classes.
