Bonet, Juan Pablo

Bonet, Juan Pablo

▪ Spanish educator
born 1560, Torres de Berrellen, Spain
died 1620, Torres de Berrellen

      Spanish cleric and educator who pioneered in the education of the deaf.

      Bonet helped develop one of the earliest and most successful methods for educating the deaf and improving both the verbal and the nonverbal communications skills of deaf-mutes. Bonet's multidimensional approach, based on the work of Pedro Ponce de León (c. 1520–84), is detailed in his Reducción de las letras y arte para enseñar a hablar a los mudos (1620; “Reduction of the Letters of the Alphabet and Method of Teaching Deaf-Mutes to Speak”). Bonet used every technique available in developing this approach. Beginning with the study of written words, Bonet taught the phonetic values of the letters, emphasizing the correct positioning of the lips and tongue needed for clear articulation. He also taught manual signs and a finger alphabet.
