Abstract

This report summarizes findings from a nationwide study conducted in Canada in 1979 of more than 4,000 hearing-impaired students in four types of special education programs—residential schools for the deaf, day schools for the deaf, full-time special education classes, and part-time programs. The report compares the students in these programs by age, degree of hearing loss, sex, cause and age at onset of deafness, additional handicapping conditions, language background, and parental hearing status. Patterns of manual communication used at school and at home are described for students in the four settings and analyzed in relation to the student characteristics listed above.
