Improving Services to 500,000 College Students Who Are Hard of Hearing or Late-Deafened. Tipsheet: Serving Students Who Are Hard of Hearing
Schroedel, John
Hard of hearing and late-deafened persons represent the largest number of Americans with a chronic physical impairment. About 414,300 such students were enrolled in higher education during 2004. To better serve these students, it is important to know some of their key attributes. Because they vary widely in personal characteristics such as resiliency, self-esteem, and fortitude, it is important to not stereotype them. This tipsheet provides an overview of services that can be provided to college students who are hard of hearing or late-deafened.
