A survey of hearing imparied children and youth in the United States for the school year 1969-70 was conducted. One dimensional summaries of selected characteristics for 32,285 students enrolled in participating special education programs for the hearing impaired were presented. Discussion of data highlights was followed by detailed tables that describe the following variables: number and percentage distribution of students enrolled in participating special educational programs for the hearing impaired by states, age, hearing threshold levels, age at onset of hearing loss, age hearing loss discovered, history of parental deafness before age six, hearing aid use, and age started formal education prior to age six; and among students enrolled in participating special educational programs for the hearing impaired, the number and rate per 1,000 students of additional handicapping conditions and probable causes of hearing loss. Appended are a description at the annual survey, basic data and preschool data forms used, and a list of programs participating in the annual survey. (CB)
