Many deaf and hard of hearing consumers of the federal vocational rehabilitation (VR) program choose higher education training while similar consumers bypass college and prepare for work through other means. An ex-post facto study was conducted to determine which VR services predict competitive employment for two subgroups of consumers: those with hearing loss who received college training and those with hearing loss who did not receive college training. A comparison of the findings from multiple logistic regression analyses run on cases within a database of the Rehabilitation Services Administration reveal differences in effective services across these two subgroups.
