Characteristics of Hearing Impaired Students by Hearing Status. United States: 1970-71.
Rawlings, Brenda; And Others
Presented were data from the Annual Survey of Hearing Impaired Children on selected characteristics of approximately 41,000 hearing impaired students who were enrolled in special educational programs during the 1970-1971 school year. Included was information on sex, age, additional handicapping conditions, ages of onset and of discovery of the hearing loss, probable etiology, type of present educational program, parental history of deafness, and distribution according to the states in which students were attending school. Each of the variables was discussed in terms of the following student groupings: all students; students with an average hearing capacity of under 85 decibels in their better ear; students whose average hearing capacity in their better ear was over 85 decibels; and students for whom an average hearing level in the better ear could not be computed. Examined were data collection methods, the choice of variables, and the qualifications and limitations of the data. (Author)
