Research into suicide attempts among deaf & hearing impaired adolescents indicated the rate of attempts is increasing at a rapid rate for this population. Lethal methods were used, indicating serious risk. As a result of these findings, recommendations were made to the Ohio State Task Force On Adolescent Suicide, which included the development of an educational program geared to the special needs of this group.
