* 1. Think about your case load in 2015-2016 or, if you are already familiar, with your 2016-2017  caseload. Please answer the following based on what you know/recall about the students you serve. Best guesstimates are acceptable!

* 2. Think about your students who refuse to use their  hearing aids or only use them occasionally (1-2x/week). Of these 'non-users' please answer the following about their degree/type of hearing loss to the best of your knowledge/ recollection. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 3. This time think about your students who refuse to use classroom hearing technology or only use it only occasionally (1-2x/week). Of these 'non-users' please answer the following about their degree/type of hearing loss to the best of your knowledge/ recollection. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 4. We now want to know about  WHEN your students began to resist using their  hearing aid(s). Please answer the following based on what you know/recall about the students you serve(d). Resisting hearing aid use means that they had been usually using their device(s) but then began to use them noticeably less time per week/month. If you have multiple students in any category below, please enter the grades that resistance began. For example, if you had 3 students with mild loss that resisted using their hearing aids you could enter (K, 3, 6) for the three grades during which their pattern of hearing aid use changed. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 5. We now want to know about  WHY your students began to resist using their  hearing aid(s). Please answer the following based on what you know/recall about the students you serve(d). Resisting hearing aid use means that they had been usually using their device(s) but then began to use them noticeably less time per week/month. Please enter numbers indicating the following: (1) malfunction/repair issues, (2) comfort complaints not related to malfunction (i.e., itchy, earmold feels tight...),  (3) family pressures, (4) social pressures, (5) low functioning; haven't achieved successful wear as yet, (6) unknown - no good 'guess' about which of the other choices it would be. Example: You have two students with mild to moderate unilateral loss. One stopped using due to repair issues and the other due to social pressures. You would enter 1, 4 into the box. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 6. We now want to know about  WHEN your students began to resist using their  classroom hearing technology (i.e., FM). Please answer the following based on what you know/recall about the students you serve(d). Resisting classroom hearing technology use means that they had been usually using their device(s) but then began to use them noticeably less time per week/month. If you have multiple students in any category below, please enter the grades that resistance began. For example, if you had 3 students with mild loss that resisted using their FM systems you could enter (K, 3, 6) for the three grades during which their pattern of hearing aid use changed. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 7. We now want to know about  WHY your students began to resist using their  classroom hearing technology. Please answer the following based on what you know/recall about the students you serve(d). Resisting classroom hearing technology use means that they had been usually using their device(s) but then began to use them noticeably less time per week/month. Please enter numbers indicating the following: (1) malfunction/repair issues, (2) comfort complaints not related to malfunction (i.e., itchy, sounds funny...),  (3) family pressures, (4) social pressures, (5) teacher resistance to using transmitter (appropriately), (6) low functioning; haven't achieved successful wear as yet, (7) unknown - no good 'guess' about which of the other choices it would be. Example: You have three students with moderate unilateral loss. One stopped using due to family pressure, one due to social pressure, and the last had a teacher who 'forgot' to use the transmitter frequently. You would enter 3, 4, 5 into the box. Again, your best guesstimates are acceptable.

* 8. Now think about those students who resist using hearing aids and/or classroom hearing technology due to social reasons. In other words, they were using their devices frequently and then their willingness to use them in school declined. Please enter the number of your students who use their devices 1-2 times per week or less per who interact with other students who have hearing loss as described below. Please select only once choice for each of your non-user students.

* 9. Are loaner units available if a student experiences malfunction and needs to have the device sent in for repair? Please read all of the choices and choose only those that apply in your situation. You should have a choice for hearing aids and for classroom hearing technology (at least 2 responses). 

* 10. THANKS SO MUCH FOR RESPONDING TO THIS SURVEY!!!  Now tell us a bit about who YOU are!
