Public school personnel were surveyed regarding their perceptions of the effects of hearing impairment on behavior and achievement, and their own needs for in-service training on that topic. Results of the survey suggest that the personnel most likely to provide local in-service training (speech-language pathologists and teachers of the deaf) differ significantly in their view of hearing-impaired children and their needs. Furthermore, in-service needs appear to differ significantly for various groups of professionals, indicating the necessity of knowledge about their preservice training and their current contacts with hearing-impaired children if in-service training is to be beneficial.
