Promoting Self-Determination of Students Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
Luckner, John L.; Sebald, Ann M.
American Annals of the Deaf, v158 n3 p377-386 2013
Self-Determination is a combination of attitudes, knowledge, and skills that enables individuals to make choices and engage in goal-directed, self-regulated behavior. Research in special education has demonstrated the benefits of promoting self-determination in achieving positive adult outcomes. However, to date, very little has been written about self-determination as it relates to the education of students who are deaf or hard of hearing. This article provides an overview of self-determination, suggestions for instructional planning, and guidance on resources that can be used to gather additional information.
