This paper covers many of the topics dealing with the education of the hearing impaired. It looks at several of the methods of communication employed by the hearing impaired (oral, sign, etc.), deaf culture, technology for the deaf (cochlear implants, text telephones (TTY), hearing aids, etc.), teaching strategies for working with deaf students in a mainstream classroom, interpreters, books containing deaf characters, and strategies for improving literacy (reading and writing). Included in the paper are an introduction, a detailed annotated bibliography divided into the sections listed in the subtitle, and a conclusion. Also included are an appendix of additional sources and a series of tables for quick review of what is covered in the annotated bibliography.

From the Paper:

"The education of deaf students has been an issue of debate for centuries. Some people believe that deaf students, preschool through college level, should be in a self-contained classroom or special school. Others believe that mainstreaming deaf students into a regular classroom is the best way to prepare these people to function in the hearing world. The Education for All Act of 1975, mandating that children should be provided education in the least restrictive environment, has led to more deaf children entering regular public schools."
