To investigate the effects of rubella on the performance of deaf subjects, a group of 30 rubella young deaf adults was compared to a group of 30 nonrubella young deaf adults on a series of measures that included the performance subtests of the WAIS, the Revised Beta, the Stanford Achievement Test, and the Utley Lipreading Test. For the 25 measures analyzed, the rubella-deaf group performed significantly poorer on the Digit Symbol subtest of both the WAIS and the Revised Beta, all subtests of the Stanford Achievement Test, and both subtests of the Utley Lipreading Test.
