Abstract

The design of a classroom for deaf/hearing impaired student educators is discussed. The subjective feedback of users is consistent with a bias in the design towards a hearing impaired listeners. The major factor contributing to the perceived low signal levels are due to reduced strong early reflections. The issues associated with ventilation and dust as related to acoustics/noise control, highlights the importance of a holistic design approach and coordination among all of the designers and users.
