For over 30 years, the Gallaudet Research Institute (GRI, formerly the Center for Assessment & Demographic Studies) has conducted its Annual Survey of Deaf and Hard-ofHearing Children and Youth. The survey represents the largest ongoing database of information on deaf and hard-of-hearing children in the United States. It is estimated from U.S. Child Counts that the Annual Survey gathers educational, demographic, and communication data on approximately 60% of identified deaf and hard-of-hearing children receiving special services across the United States (Holden-Pitt & Diaz, 1998).
