Social skills as a predictor of postsecondary outcomes for individuals who are DHH

By, Stephanie Cawthon, Jackie Caemmerer, Duncan Dickson, Oscar Ocuto, Jinjin Ge, and Mark Bond.

Social skills are important for interacting with others and navigating the world. Previous research has found that individuals’ social skills are related to how well they do in school, as well as their likelihood of employment after high school. However, there are important differences in the development of social skills for individuals who are deaf or hard-of-hearing, such as differential access to peers, family members, and other individuals who use the same language. In the present study, we assessed the influence of social skills on postsecondary outcomes for individuals who are DHH through a secondary analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Transition Study 2 (NLTS2). Results showed that individuals who had well-developed social skills were much more likely to graduate from a postsecondary program. These findings support the integration of practices designed for social skill development in transition programs and planning efforts.
