Monitoring the effects of Hearing Loss on Quality of Life, which is frequently seen on children and causes inefficiency in speech, education, and social development, is not only important for listening skills, using hearing devices, and linguistic and speech skills but also important for the treatment. And, if no treatment possible, then it is also critical for rehabilitation with different equipment. By making use of the Quality of Life Questionnaire, developed by Streufert at University of Washington in 2008 to Turkish and Turkish culture, this study was conducted in order to assess the effect of hearing loss of children between the age of 7 and 12 on their quality of life, as well as determining the effects of the hearing loss-related variables on the quality of life.
