I don't believe that anyone knows how many children with hearing loss are being homeschooled. As far as I am aware, no study of homeschoolers has looked at this question.

I run an email list for parents homeschooling deaf and hard of hearing children, and I receive email from parents through my website, deafhomeschool . Based on those interactions, and the amount of information available on this topic, I estimate that there are fewer than 500 children with hearing loss being homeschooled in the United States.

The number of deaf children would obviously be even smaller than that.

That said, the number of families homeschooling deaf and hard of hearing children is definitely on the rise.

Not necessarily. Only if the deafness was obtained genetically. For example, I am a deaf person, but it was not hereditary. Therefore, I will not have deaf children. However, if a deaf person is deaf from hereditary factors - (i.e. the mother is deaf or the grandfather is deaf) - it indicates that there is a gene that carries the deaf factor, which means that it is possible for a deaf person to have deaf children.

None. All colleges accept homeschooled students, and a large number actively attempt to recruit more homeschooled students.

He was not homeschooled. He was one of the first disabled children in Australia to be mainstreamed and attend public school.

No. Many Parents Home-school their children. Its Not a Requirement to go to school to learn you can be homeschooled.

Approximately 2% of all children in America are being homeschooled at any given time.

That depends on what you mean - how many homeschooled children complete public/private high school, or how many complete homeschool high school? You can get a lot of answers to homeschooling questions at http://www.unschooling.com and http://www.homeedmag.com . To answer your question directly, just about every homeschooled child completes some form of high school or equivalent, and most go on to higher education. But a classroom is not the only place to learn.
