Abstract
Quality of life (QOL) is used in measuring the health of an individual. It helps evaluating the treatment efficacy and cost effectiveness of different therapeutic techniques. However, limited studies were conducted to assess the QOL of hearing impaired (HI) adolescents, especially in Chinese population. This study aims at targeting this research gap. Fifty-seven HI adolescents and their parents were recruited from a deaf school in Hong Kong. Chinese version of KINDL – kiddo and parent questionnaire was used to investigate the generic QOL of the adolescents. Normative data from normal hearing Singaporean adolescents was used for comparison. Result showed that the parent-child agreement on QOL rating was good. Significant difference (p <.001) was found only in the school subscale. The self-reported QOL was comparable to the normal hearing norms. Result suggested that HI adolescents in Hong Kong are having QOL comparable to normal hearing peers. Parents are reliable reporter for their QOL and hearing impairment posed little distress on adolescents' QOL.
