21 Efficacy Article 1: TTYs and Contacting Graduate Programs Olkin, R. & Shafton-Bias, E. (1997). Using a TTY to contact clinical graduate programs. American Annals of the Deaf, 142, 312-315. Purpose: To see how many APA accredited graduate programs have a working TTY To see what department or office does the number connect to To see what happens when they call the TTY number Methods: Obtained TTY number via applicant materials or by calling information (both traditional and TTY) Called each TTY number recording all transactions

22 TTYs and Contacting Graduate Programs (cont.) Conclusions: 5 years after the ADA went into affect Only 86 out of the original 177 programs could be reached (49%) 60% of the calls were transferred to “disabled student services” while 16% went to the main switchboard and 6% went to the admissions office None of the 86 programs had a TTY that connected directly to their department or school of their department Only 5 programs listed their TTY number in the application materials Most of the TTY numbers needed to be obtained through the voice phone listings Relation to Polly: One of Polly’s future goal is to attend college. If undergraduate schools are similar to graduate ones it will be extremely difficult for Polly to apply to college independently.

23 Efficacy Article 2: Text Telephone and Videophone Relay Services Götherström, U.C., Persson, J., & Jonsson, D. (2004). A comparative study of text telephones and video relay services. Technology and Disability, 16. 101-109. Purpose: To Compare the availability, satisfaction and cost of a traditional text telephone relay service versus a videophone relay service Participants: People who were born deaf and used ASL that were 18 years or older 41 participants; largest age range 31-60 years 16 that only used the text telephone and 25 used both Text telephone and videophone relay

24 Text Telephone and Videophone Relay Services (cont.) Methods: Longitudinal study measured in three month intervals by self report questionnaire Conclusions: The satisfaction of the text telephone was rated significantly lower than the videophone relay (p<.05) The cost of the videophone relay was over 30,000 SEK ($4,286) per year higher than the text phone On the QOL measure there was no difference between the groups Text telephones relay services are open 24 hours per day while video relay services are only open from 8 AM – 8 PM Relation to Polly: We thought about recommending Polly a videophone. However, do to the high cost and inaccessibility in the States, we felt that it would not add to her independence or quality of life.
