The purpose of this study was to investigate how a hearing impairment affects competitive collegiate athletes within the NCAA Division III; and what previous and current accommodations influence the success of athletes’ play and their communication with both their hearing coaches and hearing teammates. The factors investigated via survey research were accommodations used in both previous and current education and athletic settings, along with perceptions of athletes regarding their competition experience and their encounters with their peers and coaches.
