Relationship of Communication Mode in the Classroom
to Level of Hearing Loss
1992-1993 Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children and Youth
Center for Assessment and Demographic Studies
Gallaudet University, 1994
|A.||Total number of deaf and hard of hearing students in 1992-1993 Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children and Youth with reported hearing loss and communication information:||46,531|
|B.||N with profound loss only (91+db loss or greater)||17,453 (38% of A.)|
|B2. Number of B. in auditory/oral only classrooms||1,714 (10% of B.)|
|C.||N with severe/profound loss (71 db loss or greater)||25,694 (55% of A.)|
|C2. Number of C.in auditory/oral only classrooms||3,756 (15% of C.)|
|D.||N with less than severe loss (hard of hearing)||20,837 (45% of A.)|
|D2. Number of D. in auditory/oral only classrooms||15,453 (74% of D.)|
While only 10% of students with profound loss are in auditory/oral only instructional programs; 74% of those with less than severe hearing loss are in such programs.
We estimate survey coverage to be about 70% of population of deaf and hard of hearing students in special education. Thus Ns above can be multiplied by about 1.4 to get a closer estimate of actual numbers. (For example, 1,714 x 1.4=2399.6; or, we estimate that, nationwide, there are approximately 2400 profoundly deaf kids in auditory/oral only instructional programs.
