Handicapping conditions which affect communication, such as a hearing loss, make the identification, diagnosis, and provision of services to gifted and talented handicapped students difficult.

Metropolitan area was conducted and several areas of need were found. Returns showed that programs and support services necessary to meet the unique needs of gifted and talented hearing impaired students were limited.
