Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children & Youth
Gallaudet University's Research Institute (GRI) has been collecting demographic, audiological, and other educationally relevant information on children with impaired hearing since 1968 through its Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children & Youth.
The resulting information is used by a wide variety of individuals and organizations: state and federal education and budgetary officials, education staff within schools, and other researchers. Due to our strict adherence to confidentiality, data are reported only in summary, cumulative reports; no individual student or individual school data from the survey are ever released by the GRI.
The Annual Survey has also provided a sampling framework for several national achievement testing projects using the Stanford Achievement Test in 1974, 1983, 1990, 1996, and 2003. The norms from these testing programs are used extensively by schools and programs educating deaf students.
