This document presents conference materials and five conference papers on literacy and the hearing impaired. Preceding the papers, a section of general information provides an introduction, conference format information, and a commentary by Michael Rodda. Recommendations from the work groups and an executive summary are then presented. Recommendations focus on the following areas: additional responsibility for the Office of Special Education Programs (e.g., establish a clearinghouse on literacy and the hearing impaired), technology, research, professional development, material development, program development, and funding. Three of the papers, on the topic of psychological processes, have the following titles and authors: "Psychological Processes: Processes in Reading and Writing" (Robert Kretschmer); "Cognitive Processes and the Hearing Impaired Learner" (David Martin); and "Social Aspects of Literacy Acquisition and Use" (Karen Reed Wikelund). Two papers address literacy technology: "Adult Literacy, Computer Technology and the Hearing Impaired" (Eunice Askov) and "Literacy and the Hearing Impaired: Living, Moving, Dynamic Text" (Frank Withrow). Conference participants are listed. (DB)
