integrating biological, psychological, and social aspects of human functioning. Purpose of the study: Impact
of hearing loss on prelingual and post lingual deafness with and/or without amplification device based on ICF
Framework. Method: Group I (GRP-I) consisted of 120 adult hearing aid users and Group II (GRP-II) also consisted
of 120 adult sign language users considering the age range of 18-60 years .Results: Mann-Whitney ???U??? test was used
to compare between GRP-I and GRP-II with respect to domains of ICF. Conclusion: The current study addressed
the various issues faced by individuals who are using hearing aid amplification and individuals using sign language
as mode of communication. As audiologists we should frame our intervention options in an advanced manner
considering all the domains in-order to provide better quality of life to these population.
