|Abstract: ||The aim of this study is to look into, the present conditions of educational
practices that exist and prevail in primary/secondary, governmental/nongovernmental,
and day/boarding special schools for the deaf. The total number
of the participants of the study were 166, where 115 Hearing-Impaired students
of grades 7-12, 39 special school professionals, and 12 parents/guardians of the
sampled hearing-impaired students.
The study revealed that the special needs educational services that are provided
to the hearing-impaired students in governmental and non-governmental schools
have certain disparities in terms of qualification, training and retraining of
teachers, proper educational facilities and services, budget allocation, preparing
and enabling deaf students to learn and work. Lack of vocational skills training
guideline/strategy for deaf students' education is identified as to be the major
precondition to start and continue the training.
With regard to the importance of vocational education and skill training needs for
the hearing-impaired students, there is obviously a very noticeable need for it.
That is, 89.9%, of the respondents (sampled students, school personnel, and
parents) preferred to provide vocational skills education and training for deaf
