This study investigated knowledge, attitude and decision making on HIV/AIDS among adolescents with hearing impairment in Oyo, Lagos and Kwara States. Seventy-six respondents participated in the study with age range between 16 and 20. The research adopted a descriptive survey research design. Seventy-six students with hearing impairment participated in the study. Three hypotheses were postulated and tested. The main instrument use to gather data was Family Life and HIV/AIDS Education inventory with reliability coefficient of 0.73. Chi square and student t-test methods at alpha level of 0.05 were used to analyze the data collected. The findings revealed that there were significant differences in knowledge, attitude and decision making of adolescents with hearing impairment as a result of Family Life and HIV/AIDS Education (FLHE). On the basis of the positive outcome, the study further recommended some ways of improving the effectiveness of Family Life and HIV/AIDS Education to be able to achieve the desired result among adolescents with hearing impairment and adolescents generally.
