This paper hopes to turn the attention of teachers of the deaf towards science education. Most schools of the deaf have some sort of science program if they hope to integrate their deaf children into hearing schools. The present paper proposes a developmental approach to science, stressing the preschool or kindergarten years. The main objective is an emphasis on basic concept-formation in the early years. It is hoped that with this conceptual background the deaf child will have fewer problems with language comprehension as he enters the science program in the first grade. At least he would be facing two problems, concept-formation and language comprehension, separatelv instead of simultaneously.
