Wheeler, Linda; Finley, Mary Jane
The report describes the Hearing Resource Program at Phoenix (AZ) Union High School District 210, a resource program serving 72 hearing impaired high school students as well as screening incoming freshmen for hearing loss. The program goal was to enable the students to complete their required classes successfully and graduate from high school. Additional goals included developing social skills and increasing receptive and expressive language through lipreading and speech development. Surveys of students, staff, classroom teachers, and parents showed that Ss' study habits and schoolwork improved as a result of the program. Most groups also felt that Ss showed increased self confidence. Recommendations include improving existing facilities. (Author/CL)
