Summary

Intended for high school or postsecondary hearing-impaired students or those who work with them, the fact sheet describes postsecondary options and lists a variety of additional resources. A section on facts about hearing loss stresses the importance of age of onset. The various communication methods (oral, manual, or total communication) are briefly compared. Postsecondary options are divided into three categories: the two federally supported institutions for deaf students, a separate program for hearing-impaired students on the campus of a regular postsecondary program, or a mainstreamed program with mostly hearing students. Fourteen tips for students include conferring with instructors before classes begin and selecting one's seat carefully. Seventeen tips for instructors include providing hearing-impaired students with such aids as a copy of the instructor's lecture notes and avoiding standing in front of windows or other light sources. Among special support services are interpreter services, notetaker/tutor services, remedial programs, payment sources for special services, and communications devices. Suggestions are also offered for helping the hearing-impaired student integrate socially with hearing students. The resource list describes written resources as well as 20 organizations providing services for persons with hearing impairments. (DB)
