Abstract:

To examine the individual factors impacting the self-esteem of hearing impaired (HI) children and normal hearing (NH), a sample of 142 school children of which 77 hearing impaired and 65 normal hearing children (class 8th, 9th, and 10th) in the age range of 13-18 years were selected purposively from residential deaf and dumb and regular high schools of Dharwad and Belagavi district during 2018-19. State self-esteem scale by Heatherton and Polivy (1991) was used to assess self-esteem, socio-economic scale by Aggarwal et al., (2005) and general information schedule was used to collect the personal information. The results revealed, majority of both HI (51.90%) and NH (67.70%) group had moderate level of self-esteem and there was significant difference found between hearing impaired and normal hearing children on their self-esteem where normal hearing children had significantly higher self-esteem than the hearing impaired. Hearing impaired children were significantly low on performance (49.40%), social (61%) and appearance (71.40%) dimensions of self-esteem than normal hearing children. Self-esteem of both the group did not differ on age, gender, ordinal position whereas academic achievement had significant influence on self-esteem of hearing impaired children and normal hearing children. Early detection and interventions are crucial to minimizing the impact of hearing loss on child development of self-esteem.
