The Hearing Impaired Learner with Special Needs
Written by Robert E. Stepp, Jr. for the Symposium on Research and Utilization of Educational Media for Teaching the Deaf, held on March 31 and April 1-2, 1981, at the Nebraska Center for Continuing Education in Lincoln. This paper applauds the formation of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) which stipulates that special education and related services be specifically designed to meet the unique educational needs of a student with a disability. Suggests that variations on teaching methods should be incorporated into classroom instruction and that an assortment of teaching tools should be accessible to the teacher in accordance with a student's learning ability and level of interest. Three subtopics are areas of concern because of their implications to the education of the hearing impaired: (1) giftedness, (2) developmental disabilities, and (3) deaf-blindness. Also includes a list of symposium presenters.about research, educators
An Examination of Twenty Literacy, Science, and Mathematics Practices Used to Educate Students Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
The results of a multistep process to begin identifying best practices in deaf education are presented. To identify current practices, a survey was conducted of the literature, the Web sites of professional organizations, and states' education Web sites, which yielded a number of commonly discussed practices. Ten of the more highly cited practices in literacy instruction and 10 of the more highly cited practices in science and mathematics instruction were identified for additional scrutiny. Hundreds of articles were examined to identify research support for the 20 identified practices. Some practices had adequate research support; others had minimal support. The authors identify each of the 20 practices, describe the practice, present a summary of the literature that was examined, and rate the usefulness of the knowledge base relative to a "best practice" designation.about research, educators

The Case for Real Time Captioning in Classrooms
The inclusion of captions in a classroom dramatically increases a deaf or hard of hearing person's ability to comprehend the speaker. In addition, providing captions to hearing people also seems to enhance verbal comprehension. The increased comprehension for both hearing and deaf students will likely lead to a better learning environment and improved information transfer between the teacher and the students. Author Aaron Steinfeld is a researcher at the National Robotics Engineering Consortium at Carnegie Mellon University. The material from this article is drawn from his 1999 dissertation "The Benefit of Real-Time Captions in a Classroom Environment."From Aaron Steinfeld about research, captioning, educators
