The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of the narrative production condition and topics in children with and without hearing loss. The participants were 9 children using hearing aids or cochlear implant who had been educated in the mainstreamed setting, and 9 children having normal hearing ranged between 9 and 11 years of age. All participants scored above –1 SD on the standardized language test and narrative comprehension assessment. Narrative data was collected on the two conditions; story retelling and story generation. Each condition had two topics, which were different in terms of the familiarity to children. Collected data were analyzed in the number of T-unit, Mean Length of T-unit in morphemes (MLTm), Subordinate Index (SI), the type of independent clause, and grammatical error. The results showed that there was no difference between groups on the syntactic characteristics, but their performances were different according to the narrative production conditions, story modeled to children, and the topics. The hearing loss group was more sensitive to the condition for the data collection. It suggests that the narrative condition, model story, and topics should be considered when collecting narrative data as well as analyze and interprete the data, especially for the hearing impaired group.
