Approximately 85% of all deaf and hard-of-hearing students in the United States are educated in public school programs. This high percentage makes it very likely that physical educators will at some point have to teach a student who is deaf or hard-of-hearing. It is considered best practice for all educators to be aware of Deaf culture, students' communication needs, and the modifications that will ensure the success of all students. Teachers may need to make some basic modifications to their inclusion strategies, visual instruction, communication styles, peer tutoring, and socialization techniques to help these students reach their full potential. This article intends to help general physical educators to ensure the success for their deaf students. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
