Overview of Psychological and Demographic Research with Hearing Impaired People.
Trybus, Raymond J.
A researcher involved with the study of deafness covers such topics as prevalence of deafness, educational placement options, and statistics on special education programs for the deaf and hard of hearing. Among findings of the Annual Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth are that only 10% of special programs report genetic counseling for parents; nearly 66% of all special programs subscribe to a total communication approach; reading achievement of the median 19 year old deaf student leaving school is at a fourth grade equivalent; and severity of hearing loss and family socioeconomic status are the two most powerful determiners of educational outcome.
