An excellent vlog! Regarding Jean Marc Gaspard Itard (1774 – 1838), I find it quite ironic that he should be be so honored with the following “titles: the first hearing and speech specialist; founder of otology; the father of oral education of the deaf in modern times; inventor of educational devices; father of the education of idiots” (Harlan Lane, When the Mind Hears, p.121). It is sad to see Itard earning all these honorifics even though he did not have any successes! *really sad*
