Volta Review, v95 n4 p403-15 Fall 1993
Data from 1,309 persons who were working and became hard of hearing or deafened between the ages of 18 and 65 are analyzed to determine work outcomes in terms of occupation, perception of work achievement, earning power, support of supervisors and colleagues, and work adaptations. Data show that work success is possible and usual after accommodation and adaptation. (Author/JDD)
