The paper focused on the effect of auditory training on reading comprehension of children with hearing impairment in Enugu State. A total of 33 children with conductive, sensory neural and mixed hearing loss were sampled for the study in the two schools for the Deaf in Enugu State. The design employed for the study was a quasi experiment (pre-test and post-test design) with all the subjects exposed to training. The instrument used for data collection was Reading Comprehension Test (RCT) and validated by experts in the education of children with hearing impairment. Two research questions and two hypotheses were formulated to guide the study. Mean and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions while Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) was used to analyze the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The finding of the study showed that all the children with hearing impairment exposed to reading comprehension through the use of auditory training achieved a measure of reading. Gender does not influence the mean reading achievement of children with hearing impairment. Conclusions and recommendations were also made.
