Introduction: Hearing loss in children is a main cause of malfunction in them. On the other hand, adaptive Behavior includes the age-appropriate behaviors necessary for people to live normally and in daily life. The objective of this study was to compare the adaptive behaviors of 12-36 months deaf and normal children.
Methods: In this case- control study, we compared adaptive behaviors score of 40 deaf children with 40 normal children. Adaptive behaviors were measured using Vineland scale.
Results: In 12 to 24 month children, there was a significant difference between two groups (P=0.007). However, in 24 to 36 month children there was no significant difference between the two groups (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: It seems that parental acceptance of children's hearing losses can lead to an improvement in adaptive behaviors of their children.
