A survey of possible jobs in the para-medical field for deaf and hard of hearing persons

The problem of underemployment of the deaf has led me to investigate the career opportunities in the para medical field. I have limited myself to this area primarily because the prediction is that medicine and the allied medical fields will be employing more and more workers. It is estimated that more than one million workers will be needed in this field in the next decade in addition to doctors. dentists and registered nurses. Presently the medical field is the third largest employer; by 1970 it may well be in first place.
