Ï€Educational Programs and Services A. Schools and Classes: Preschool through Secondary (Data on programs, pupils, and staff) B. Postsecondary Programs C. University Programs Training Personnel in Deafness D. Programs for the Deaf-Blind Schools and Classes for the Deaf in the United States This section provides information on the programs offered , the students served, and the educational staff employed by U.S. schools and classes for preschool-, elementary -, and secondary-level deaf children. The listing is alphabetical by state. Each state listing provides in sequence: schools (residential & day), classes, and facilities for other handicap(s). Column rules separate residential and day facilities. The programs listed here include those that have responded to the 1985 Annals questionnaire. Nonrespondents are listed by address only (no data provided) and are not included in the Tabular Summary of Schools and Classes. The following key applies to schools and classes both in the United States and Canada (see pages 94-139). Program Classification: Schools ......... Educational programs housed in building(s) primarily for deaf students, and enrolling 10 or more such students Classes.......... Educational programs housed in unit(s) devoted only partially to deaf students Facilities for ..... Educational programs for handicap(s) other Other Handicap(s) than deafness but providing classes for deaf children Program Data: Res .............

Number residential students Day............. Number day students Ages............ Minimum enrollment and maximum attendance ages MH............. Number of multihandicapped students Grad............ Total 1985 graduates Notes: Student/staff ratios may seem unrealistic for some programs in this listing (staff total may exceed student total). These programs often have students partially mainstreamed within a number of different facilities; thus, staff full-time equivalents are difficult to determine. An open-ended figure in the "Ages" category (e.g.. Ages 6- ) indicates no maximum age limit was provided in the program survey. Educational Staff Data: Tot.............. Total number full-time educational staff A............... Number Educational Administrators T ............... Number Instructors (classroom teachers) H............... Number Teacher Aides S ............... Number Clinical and other Supportive Personnel (audiologists, interpreters, psychologists , home school visitors, social workers, rehabilitation counselors, researchers, media/ library personnel) D............... Number of Deaf Persons on educational staff C ............... Number with certification as teachers of the deaf by the State Department of Education Notes: An educational staff total equal to zero indicates there is less than one full-time (or full-time equivalent) staff member working specifically with deaf students. Programs providing insufficient survey information have been listed, but are not included in the Tabular Summary of Schools and Classes (see pg. 136).
