Title: Higher education for deaf students: research priorities in the new millennium
Author: Lang, Harry
Abstract: A review of research on deaf students in higher education reveals a significant body of knowledge about the barriers these students face in gaining access to information in the classroom. Much less is known about the potential solutions to these problems. In addition, there is a dearth of research on the effectiveness of such support services as interpreting, note taking, real-time captioning, and tutoring, particularly with regard to their impact on academic achievement. This article summarizes relevant research and suggests directions for educational researches interested in enhancing academic success and the retention of deaf students in higher education programs.
