Unless vestibular etiology exists, the hearing impaired student exhibits no difference in motor performance than other students in the regular physical education class. Physical educators will need to plan and teach lessons which show an understanding of the concomitant language delay that will accompany a hearing impairment. Using sign language and a variety of visual aids as well as monitoring the language level of handouts can make the physical education class highly beneficial for the hearing impaired student.
