dc.description.abstract This study investigated the expressed attitudes of deaf people in India toward career choices for deaf and hearing people. Deaf adults from Pune, India rated the suitability of 12 professions for deaf and hearing people and gave written comments on the suitability of any other professions they could list. The results, in general, were consistent with those of other studies in the United States, England, Italy, south Africa, and India with hearing teachers and parents of deaf children, which indicated that the hearing status of imagined deaf and hearing advisees selectively influenced attitudes toward the suitability of certain professions. Some differences in profession preferences also emerged indicating that the deaf respondents' criteria for career choice appeared to be primarily based on the use of hearing, speech, and visual skills required for a particular career. There was some suggestion that culturally specific factors played a role in shaping attitudes. These findings underscore the importance of understanding the attitudes of deaf people. en_US
