Summary

The study examined the relationship between the family environment of 124 hearing impaired children (9-13 years old) and academic achievement. Interviews focused on what parents do with their children, how they interact (the social-psychological family environment) as well as status characteristics in relation to their children's academic achievement. Among major findings was that the correlation of the overall family environment and academic achievement was not consistent across levels of status characteristics. Generally a more favorable learning environment predicted high achievement in academic content areas. Demographic variables, in order of the power and accuracy of the solutions, predicted high and low achievement better in reading comprehension than in math concepts. Overall, family environment variables were found to be the better predictors of academic achievement than were demographic characteristics. Implications for the framework of person-environment-behavior interaction on which the study was based are considered. Among appended material is the environmental measurement instrument. (CL)
