Based on the research reported in the literature over the last 15 years, about 30% of the general school-aged population has some degree of hearing loss (Downs, 1991; National Center for Health Statistics, 1994; Anderson, 1997; Johnson, Benson, & Seaton,1997). Because of the provisions in the original Individuals with Disabilities Act (1975) and its various reauthorizations, approximately 80% of students who are hard-of-hearing or deaf receive educational services in the mainstream setting. Of course, there has also been a concomitant increase in children with all kinds of disabilities being placed into the mainstream setting. The consequence of this increase of children with disabilities in the mainstream has been an increase in individuals in the areas of audiology, speech-language pathology, deaf education, and a variety of specialists in other areas as well.
