Following 30 years of mainstreaming disabled children into public schools, the authors sought to identify deaf and hard of hearing students' accessibility to counseling services. This study identified a number of issues related to student behaviors and/or counseling support children were receiving in South Carolina public schools and residential programs in the southeastern United States (U.S.). The survey distributed to professional counselors revealed a number of significant findings including: 1) Deaf and hard of hearing children are experiencing varying degrees of difficulty functioning in educational programs, and b) a significant number of deaf and hard of hearing children are receiving varying degrees of counseling support.
