Background and Aims: Previous studies showed that hearing loss is positively correlated with behavioral disorders and increases the risk of some problems. The purpose of the present study was to review articles on behavioral and emotional disturbances in hearing impaired children and to determine the prevalence and causes of these disorders.
Materials and Methods: In the current study, articles published between 2005 and 2016 about the emotional and behavioral disorders, and hearing loss in Pubmed, SID, Sage, Springer link, Elsevier and Google databases were searched using the following keywords: behavioral disorders, emotional disorders, hearing loss, hearing impairment, and related terms.
Results: Language plays a key role in the development of the child's social development. Unfortunately, hearing impaired children, due to the lack of fluency in language skills, have fundamental problems in establishing the right relationship with others and social skills.
Conclusion: The prevalence of behavioral disorders is more in hearing impaired children, as compared with normal children. The most important reasons that can be cited for these disorders include defects in the development of language and these individuals’ communication difficulties. In addition, parenting style and their acceptance rate are very important in this regard.
