Because students who are deaf or hard of hearing often struggle with reading comprehension, this research study asks “what strategies can be used to successfully support the development or improvement of reading comprehension of students who are deaf or hard of hearing?” Using data collected from questionnaires, focus groups, and student scores before and after interventions, the conclusion was that there are several different strategies that are currently being used with students who are deaf or hard of hearing to support their reading comprehension. The implications of this study can be used to educate teachers of the deaf about which strategies support reading comprehension for students who are deaf or hard of hearing.
