An Instrument and Research Design for Assessing the Attitudes of Parents and Teachers Toward Occupational Opportunities for Deaf People.
DeCaro, James J.
The influence of parents and teachers upon the deaf child's formulation of his or her concept of deafness is quite profound. The articulation of the attitudes of parents and teachers toward the types of employment deaf people can perform is, therefore, very important. An attitude instrument and research methodology were developed and tested with parents and teachers at the Northern Counties School for the Deaf in England. The validation and reliability data and the research method are presented in the paper. (Author/BW)
