The article ponders on how students with hearing impairments can improve access to learning when film and video technology is used in a classroom setting. In public schools, students with hearing impairments are categorized into two labels, namely, deaf and hard of hearing. Such students use two types of personal amplification systems including cochlear implants and hearing aids. The article offers information on the creation of the Described and Captioned Media Program (DCMP), administered by the National Association of the Deaf and funded by the U.S. Department of Education.
