A Study of Selected Support Services for Postsecondary Deaf Students in Regular Classes.
Stuckless, E. R.; Enders, M.
The study of the use made by deaf students in regular college classes of selected support services involved 84 deaf students at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf who were cross-registered in various courses for hearing students at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Students' use and perceptions of four support services were investigated: interpreting, notetaking, tutoring, and text books. Student responses, together with information on their receptive communication skills and course grades, were used to answer questions concerning: degree of use of the four services, how students use the services, how students perceive the relative importance of the services in different courses, and whether responses varied as a function of the College in which the student took the regular courses, as a function of their receptive communication skills, or as a function of the grades received. Used in order of frequency were interpreters, textbooks, shared notes, and tutoring. Extent and type of services used were related slightly to type of course, and more so to receptive communication skills and grades received. No specific conclusions were drawn. (KW)
