Ponce de León, Pedro

Ponce de León, Pedro

▪ Spanish Benedictine monk
born 1520?
died 1584

      Spanish Benedictine monk believed to have been the first person to develop a method for teaching deaf-mutes.

      Ponce achieved his first success with Gaspard Burgos, who, because of his affliction, had been denied membership in the Benedictine order. Under Ponce's tutelage, Burgos learned to speak so that he could make his confession; Burgos later wrote a number of books. Ponce taught several other deaf-mutes to speak and write, although details of his methods either were never recorded or have been lost. He apparently traced letters and indicated pronunciation with lip movements to introduce and develop speech among his students.
