"The Secondary School Experiences and Academic Performance of Students With Hearing Impairments"
More than a third of teenagers with hearing impairments took all their courses in general education classrooms, and most were given some type of accommodation, support, or service from their schools, a report says.
But the study, from the National Center for Special Education Research, also found that higher percentages of 13- to 19-year-olds with hearing impairments scored below the mean on academic-achievement tests compared with students in the general population. The findings are based on information collected 10 years ago from a nationally representative sample of 1,000 students with hearing impairments.
