Educators in the UK have been monitoring the attainments of deaf children in mathematics. In general, the research on deaf pupils' mathematics achievement appears to be weaker in comparison to their hearing peers. The studies documented have spanned over five decades and it is urgent that educators reach a better understanding of why these students are underperforming, so that they can make conscious efforts to change the situation. In this article, the author briefly examines some of the research on students who are deaf and what difficulties they have when learning mathematics. It is most important to look at the strategies that mathematics teachers use in order to aid these students. The author includes her observations of Student X with a hearing impairment.
