Reported Emotional/Behavioral Problems Among Hearing Impaired Children in Special Educational Programs: United States, 1972-73. (Series R, No. 1).
Jensema, Carl; Trybus, Raymond J.
A 1972-73 survey of 43,946 students in special education programs for the hearing impaired provided data on the relationship of reported emotional/behavioral problems to the following demographic variables: program type, sex, ethnic background, birth year, age at onset, degree of hearing loss, etiology, and existence of additional handicapping conditions. A total of 3,438 students were reported as having educationally significant emotional/behavioral problems. The greatest differences in rates of reporting emotional/behavioral problems were related to the student's sex (higher rates among males) and the presence or absence of other handicapping conditions (higher rates among those with other handicapping conditions).
