A gap exists between the academic achievement of youth with hearing impairments and their peers in the general population in reading, mathematics, science, and social studies, according to a new release by The National Center for Special Education Research. This report uses data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2 dataset to provide a national picture of the secondary school experiences and academic achievement of students with hearing impairments who received special education services. The outcomes cover several key areas, including students' experiences in general education academic courses and non-vocational special education courses, accommodations, supports, services provided to students, and academic achievement. In addition to the findings for the overall group, this fact sheet provides findings by parent-reported levels of hearing impairments. This is the fifth in a series of NLTS2 fact sheets on the experiences and outcomes of youth in a specific disability category. (Contains 23 footnotes, 20 tables, and 1 figure.)
