Abstract

The vocational choices of people who are deaf are unfortunately and often unnecessarily restricted. A large measure of this limitation is intrinsic. A deaf person is not likely to become a piano tuner or an audiologist. Occupations which require hearing, intelligible speech, or fluent language present obvious barriers to employment for profoundly deaf persons. Moreover there are factors related to deafness which tend to create vocational problems.
