The paper urges educators to take a renewed view of the problems and implications associated with auditory impairment in the student. Helping a child learn to utilize incoming information efficiently is seen as a problem of management. The processing of auditory information is briefly considered in the determination of what is entailed in the management of learning processes. Educators of the deaf are advised to evaluate each part of the mediating process which occurs between stimuli reception and subsequent behavior to insure that no obstacles to learning remain unidentified. It is said that the answer to the question of why a child cannot hear must consider such aspects of perception as a signal reception, signal analysis and acceptance, signal retention, signal synthesis and integration, and signal convergence and divergence. After this attention to auditory processing, appropriate rehabilitative educational programs can then be developed. (KW)
