This study examined the attitudes held by high school students who are deaf and their potential employers regarding employees who are deaf. The subjects of this study were 30 employers from a large metropolitan area in the southeast and 30 high school students who are deaf. Subjects responded to a Likert scale that focused on how each group perceived the others' opinions of work-related issues and attitudes. Results indicated three individual areas of significance (i.e., writing, intelligence, and inability to use a telephone) and one significant aggregate group (i.e., communication). The authors discuss these results from the perspective of providing information to professionals preparing high school students who are deaf for the world of work.
