Abstract
Good reading has a very important role in the development of children with hearing impaired; also
reading in explicit way is one of the crucial factors which aect the oral language development of
children with hearing impaired. e best form and possibility of improvement, development of oral
language, development of communicating, receipt of information, knowledge, and ideas over the
world, is reading. When the auditory perception is damaged reading is poor. Hearing impairment
causes a lot of problems in the development of personality of children with hearing impairment in
these elds: poor development of vocabulary, poor quality of lexica, poor quality of sentences, and
disorder in articulation. e purpose of this research is to verify the following: 1-Speed of reading
of hearing impaired children, 2-e number of errors, 3-e kind of errors, 4-To understand
the text in the context of the degree of hearing impairment, age (class), success in school and
gender. is theoretical-experimental study was made with students from two schools; special
school “Mother Teresa” in Prizren and Primary School “Elena Gjika” in Prishtina (class attached).
e research included a total of 32 students (respondent) 27 students (respondent) from special
schools “Mother Teresa” in Prizren and 5 elementary school students “Elena Gjika” Prishtina, all
these students are with hearing impairment. From 32 students involved in the research, 23 were
male and 9 female. e research was done by applying a text fables “e fox and the raven” watched
and analyzed in terms of three dimensions. e research results have shown that students with
hearing impairments have considerable problems in many aspects; in terms of speed of reading,
students with hearing impairment have stagnated compared with their peers in the ratio 8/1. In
terms of reading errors have stagnated considered being incomparable. In terms of understanding
the text students with hearing impairment have stagnated compared with their peers in 8/1.
Signicant dierences exist even within the group of deaf students in the three aspects of the study
based on three dimensions of text, the terms of the speed of reading, signicant dierences exist
also in the manifestation of errors and understanding of the text. Dierences are also evident in
terms of the degree of the hearing impairment, in terms of age and gender within the group of the
deaf; this means that individual characteristics of students represent important facts.
Keywords: Disabled hearing, hearing impairment, age damage, period of deterioration.
