Abstract

Increasingly, educational programs for hearing-impaired children are using microcomputers as a medium for instructional programs. This article reports the findings of a survey conducted to identify the type of available equipment, software, and training; the instructional use and needs as preceived by microcomputer users; and the rate of growth of microcomputer use in educational settings for hearing-impaired students. Of the 342 surveyed programs, 82% responded, and 51% used microcomputers as an instructional tool. Results indicate a critical need for a software exchange among programs for hearing-impaired students, as well as in-service training and information-sharing programs. The survey information indicates the need for increased support for technology and teachers of hearing-impaired students.
