Some Effects of Hearing Impairment upon School Performance.
Quigley, Stephen P.; Thomure, F. Eugene
To determine the effects of hearing impairment on school performance of students for whom no special educational provisions had been made, 116 students (ages 7 through 17 in public school grades 2 through 10) were evaluated for auditory impairment, IQ, and educational achievement. Findings of the study showed that even mild hearing impairment resulted in educational retardation. The study also indicated the need for early and improved screening for auditory handicaps, and the lack of educational provisions for the mildly impaired. (RD)
