Every child has unique needs and abilities that affect her/his learning process. Children with hearing impairments (CwHI) are no exception. There is range of diversity in the nature of hearing loss experienced by CwHI. Four basic parameters that distinguish the nature of hearing loss are; degree of hearing loss, age of onset, type and cause of hearing loss. Therefore, needs and requirements of CwHI are diverse. Seeking unitary strategies to teach them is not justifiable. It is very crucial to address their special needs in the classroom. The present article is divided into three parts. First part describes the diverse nature of children with hearing impairment. Second part addresses the special needs of CwHI. Finally the last part discusses the teaching strategies for children with hearing impairment.
