This study is a partnership between a Regional Day School Program for the Deaf (RDSPD) and Texas Tech University. Archival data from the RDSPD will be analyzed to determine: (a) the reading achievement level of fifth grade students who are deaf or hard of hearing and who participate in the general reading curriculum with support from See the Sound/Visual Phonics; (b) the reading progress of these students from second grade to fifth grade; and (c) how they compare in reading achievement to fifth grade hearing students. Data beginning with the 2002-2003 school year and ending with the 2012-2013 school year will be examined; data collected will include district and state standardized test scores, as well as district assessments based on the objectives of the current reading curriculum.
