Abstract

The purpose of this research was to develop recommendations for a preparatory English language program for hearing-impaired college students for Clark County Community College, Las Vegas, Nevada, and other concerned colleges that do not presently offer such a program. A questionnaire designed to elicit program information regarding the goals and objectives, instructional practices and procedures, assessment and evaluation, and major problems and solutions was developed. The questionnaire was sent to directors of current preparatory hearing-impaired English language programs in two-year, liberal arts colleges; An analysis of the data received revealed a good deal of diversity as well as considerable similarity in the goals and objectives, practices and procedures, and problems and solutions of the 35 responding programs. A synthesis and discussion of the data considered the relative merits and detriments, advantages and disadvantages of current program goals and objectives, practices and procedures. Based on these considerations, recommendations for a preparatory English language program for hearing-impaired college students were presented.
