Volta Review, v100 n2 p87-103 Spr 1998
This study compared the literal and inferential comprehension abilities for textual, functional, and recreational text genres of 195 students who were deaf or hard of hearing. Literal comprehension exceeded inferential comprehension for males but not females. Educational setting (special class, resource room, or fully mainstreamed) influenced ability for literal and inferential reading and for comprehension facility. (Contains extensive references.)
