An Identification of the Science Career Development Needs of Deaf Students.
Stolte, Joanne B.
A questionnaire developed through analysis of the literature on the science career development needs of deaf students was completed by 20 individuals from the ranks of deaf scientists, science and industrial leaders, science educators of deaf students, career development specialists working with deaf students, staff of rehabilitation programs and services for deaf persons, members of community programs and supportive services for deaf persons, and representatives of educational programs training those who work with deaf students. When the needs statements from the survey were ranked, needs related to information about the world of work ranked as seven of the first eight needs statements. Additional needs identified by respondents fell in the categories of training programs for teachers of deaf students; basic skills instruction; information regarding the world of work; and sufficient support services, resources, and materials. The most highly endorsed need was for role models of deaf individuals currently employed in science related occupations. (The questionnaire is appended.) (CL)
