Abstract This study investigated how well 273 teachers in Georgia understood the needs of mainstreamed children who were hard of hearing who were in their classrooms. A survey was sent to 273 teachers of students with hearing loss who were not receiving special education services. The survey sought information regarding the teachers' awareness of their students' hearing loss and what they knew about the loss. Teachers were also asked how they received information about the hearing loss and how they preferred to receive it. Deficiencies were found in the teachers' level of awareness and knowledge regarding their students' hearing loss across all grade levels. Teachers generally preferred the information sources with which they were most familiar. Recommendations are offered to improve communication with classroom teachers regarding students' hearing loss.
