Model Library Services for the Hearing-Handicapped.
Goss, Theresa Carter
This study of 39 deaf students at St. Petersburg Junior College indicated that a considerable number of students with hearing impairments seek higher education in regular community colleges, and that many of them not only graduate from such institutions but attain professional status in the occupational world commensurate with their educational achievements. It is assumed that providing some special library services in community colleges would enhance the chances of deaf students achieving success in higher education. Special counseling early in high school to students with demonstrated academic ability, special counseling and special library services in community colleges, and greater attention to the educational needs of students with total and moderate hearing impairment, are identified as three factors which influence success. It is recommended that (1) the program be revised and put into a diffent format as videocassette tape within the next two years, (2) librarians broaden their resource knowledge through inservice programs, and (3) guidelines be established for developing additional special programs for hearing handicapped students.
