This study was designed to obtain basic data for appropriate improvement plans by surveying and analysing the usage of assistive listening devices (ALDs) and counseling activities of students in hearing impaired schools. A total of 102 students were participated in this study from seven hearing impaired schools. The results of this study are summarized as follows. First, it is showed that most of the responded students (86.3%) weared ALDs (hearing aids, 68.8% and cochlear implants, 21.1%) and among the 88 students 21 students used two kinds of ALDs. Second, most students (75%) were influenced by their ‘parent’ and ‘teacher’ when they took ALDs. As merits in use of ALDs, the students selected ‘able to communicate well with other people’(33.5%) and ‘able to listen to what they want to listen (19.9%)’. Third, high school students were the most worried about ‘for admission to a school of higher grade or their future paths (44.8%)’ while ‘their hearing impairments (28.6%)’ ranked number one as middle school students’ biggest worry. Lastly, 90.2% of students responded that they have ever experienced to receive counseling for their problems, however, 55 students (53.9%) responded that there were no counseling offices and 79 (84.3%) said that there were no professional counseling teachers in their schools. In conclusion, for the activation of counseling activities, it needs to make sufficiently students understand and support institutionally the installation of counseling offices and placement of professional counseling teachers.
