The itinerant teaching model is the most common service delivery method for deaf and hard of hearing students in the United States. This model is even more common in rural states where itinerant teachers of the deaf (ITODs) may serve several school buildings and travel extensive distances. Substantial literature exists regarding ITODs; however, a notable gap exists regarding parent perceptions of ITOD services for their children. This study replicated work done in rural Australia that examined parent perceptions of ITOD services. Parents of children with hearing loss in North Dakota were surveyed to investigate their perceptions of the ITOD services their children were receiving. Results indicated North Dakota parents were mostly satisfied with the ITOD services and offered specific suggestions for improvement. Implications of these results for strengthening family and school partnerships as well as suggestions for future research are discussed.
