Increased emphasis has been placed on mainstreaming hearing-impaired students into regular classes with their hearing peers. The purpose of this study was to survey a large sample of regular education teachers who currently provide educational services to hearing-impaired students. Information regarding their attitudes about working with hearing-impaired students, administrative support, assistance from the teacher of the hearing-impaired, and student socialization were obtained and are reported. Concerns about current practices in teacher-training programs and existent approaches to mainstreaming hearing-impaired students are raised.
