Hearing Impairment in School Children

  • Shigeko Harigai


Every child is born with a body that has the potential to develop. He or she then acquires the faculty of speech through their own growth and relations with those around them and utilizes it for learning (school life). If a child has hearing impairment or delayed development of the faculty of speech, he or she will experience some difficulty in achieving results of learning in school life and in establishing human relations. In this paper, I would like to discuss the school life problems of those children with light and moderate hearing impairment who are registered in an ordinary class.
