Abstract: The attitudes of teachers and parents of deaf children in India toward career choices for deaf and hearing people were investigated with respondents rating the suitability of eight professions for an imagined group of equally qualified deaf and hearing advisees, The attitudes of parents and teachers in India were found to be similar to those reported in previous studies co,ducted in the United States, Italy, England, and South Africa and showed that the hearing status of the imagined advisees selectively influenced the respondents' ratings of their suitability for those professions These results suggested that differences in the availability of educational or technological support for deaf people do not necessarily lead to differences in attitudes regarding career choices for deaf people.
