Results of a Follow-Up Sociometric Research Study and Summary of Longitudinal and Cross Sectional Data on Hearing Impaired Children Enrolled in Regular Classrooms.
Kennedy, Patricia; And Others
The peer acceptance and self perceived status of 16 elementary grade students with moderate, severe and profound hearing impairments enrolled in regular public school classrooms were examined. Eleven Ss comprised a longitudinal sample and were in the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade at the time of the follow-up study; five Ss were in first grade. Three sociometric tests were administered to the longitudinally studied and first grade hearing impaired children and their classmates to assess both peer acceptance and self-perceived status. Results indicated that these hearing impaired children were as accepted as their normally hearing peers. However, the first grade Ss with impaired hearing scored higher than the longitudinal group on all measures. All of the Ss were perceptive of their own social status. (Included is a summary of cross sectional and longitudinal data, a teacher questionnaire, and implications for preschool programing.) (Author/SB)
