Abstract: ABSTRACT The present study is to investigate the speech intelligibility in the hearing impaired population. It aims to measure speech intelligibility using rating scales and write down procedure.In order to get 60 speech samples varying in intelligibility, hearing impaired children and adolescents within the age group of 10-16 years with a Mean age of 13.51 years (S.D.=2.15) with different degrees of hearing loss were selected. Three groups of 20 subjects each were included, Moderately severe hearing loss, Severe hearing loss & Profound hearing loss. The six point NTID and seven point AYJNIHH rating scales along with Hindi passage of 102 words were used. On the 6 point rating scale Pearson’s ‘r’ correlation is indicative of very high positive correlation i.e 0.75.This is statistically significant (p<0.01) for moderately severe group. The positive correlation i.e 0.67 for the 7 point rating scale and word identification task for Moderately severe group. A highly significant difference was found between word identification score and the various degrees of hearing loss (F(2,57)=357.55;P<0.001). Thus it emphasizes the point that both the perceptual and objective measures strongly suggests that the ratings and write down procedure provides a viable and significantly more accurate alternative for speech intelligibility assessment. The 6 point NTID scale however, appears slightly more sensitive than the 7th AYJNIHH scale.
