According to various studies on general education and inclusion education, teachers have a negative attitude towards students with hearing loss. This study provides psychometric evaluation results in regards to the attitudes of students in education who will teach inclusion classes for those with hearing loss.
The 218 students whose major was education related were assessed by using the College Students Attitudes Toward Loss of Hearing Questionnaire designed by Cienkowski & Pimentel. This questionnaire was composed of fifteen questions with respects to the stigma of hearing loss (6 items), knowledge about hearing loss (4 items), views of hearing aid (cochlear implant) wearers (5 items), and evaluated people’s without hearing disabilities attitude toward of hearing loss.
Cronbach’s alpha were 0.77-0.79; indicating high reliability. The percentages of positive awareness about hearing loss were 46.8- 97.7%; a somewhat high rate. Attitudes of students in education for hearing loss were decided by studying special education and hearing disability.
It was confirmed that students in education had relatively positive attitudes about those with hearing loss which could lead to a change in awareness depending on whether they study special education or deaf education. Currently, teacher education curriculum is insufficient in regards to the understanding of hearing loss. Therefore, it is necessary to strengthen the participation of various teacher training courses and counseling programs to understand hearing loss, and to have proper cooperation with hearing loss specialists.
Key Words: Hearing loss, Attitudes, Students in education, Inclusion.
