The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between social support and social adjustment among hearing impaired children. Correlational research design was used. It was hypothesized that social support would be positively correlated and a predictor of social adjustment in hearing impaired children. The sample comprised of 74 hearing impaired children (N = 74) including 45 boys and 29 girls having hearing impairment with age range of 5-18 years (M = 13.78, SD = 2.741). Child and Adolescent Social Support Scale (CASSS) and Children’s Attention And Adjustment Inventory (CAAI) was used to assess social support and social adjustment respectively. Results indicated that there was a positive relationship between social support and social adjustment of hearing impaired children. The study can be used by counselors to educate parents and teachers about the ways of how to support the child.
