The aim of this study is to investigate a possible correlation in the learning and memory styles of the hearing impaired in comparison to their same age peers. The sample consisted of two groups; the hearing impaired group were 60 in total (32 girls and 28 boys), and the hearing group consisted of 59 subjects (28 girls and 31 boys). The Egan, lames and Rooney Pictorial Learning and Memory test was used to ascertain the immediate memory span and learning curve of the subjects. The raw scores obtained were converted into mean and standard deviation scores. This data was subsequently used to evaluate the main hypoFinal Year Project with respect to three questions. The sub-hypoFinal Year Project of establishing a correlation between the hearing impaired and their hearing peers with respect to memory capacity and learning ability was rejected. While the hearing subjects surpassed their hearing impaired peers in the immediate memory span, the learning capabilities of the hearing impaired subjects were superior. The question of the possibility of significant gender differences was accepted. In both groups, the female subjects scored slightly higher than their male counterparts. However, the hypoFinal Year Project that memory increases with age was rejected with respect to the hearing group whereas, it was accepted in the hearing impaired group. Overall, the hypoFinal Year Project of the study that there would be a correlation in memory skills between subjects with normal hearing and those with a hearing impairment was rejected. The possible causal factors of this outcome that have been hypoFinal Year Projected are: level of language, intellectual abilities and concentration levels.
