Abstract

A national survey was conducted to obtain basic demographic data and other characteristics of hearing-impaired children who come from home environments where the spoken language is unlike that used in the school. The results indicate that there is a steady increase in the number of these children nationwide. A higher incidence of additional handicaps are reported for this group. Though educators express a deep concern for these children, relatively little was reported by way of accommodating their needs.
