Evoking Speech in the Deaf

A History of the Montfort College for Special Needs Education and the FIC Brothers in Malawi

by Vita Mumba

In 1969 the Brothers of the Immaculate Conception of the Holy Virgin Mary (FIC Brothers) set out to teach deaf children so that they could take their rightful place in society. This book shows the history of the Training of Teachers for the Hearing Impaired, its recognition and growth, and the changing educational concepts employed. It seems that the concept of inclusive ‘education for all’, employed without sufficient means, endangers the gains that have been made over the years.
