Hearing impaired learners encounter many challenges which are caused by their inability to hear and effectively use oral language. A functional guidance and counseling programme has a pivotal role in providing the hearing impaired learners with life skills to enable them to live effective lives despite their handicap. Wamocho, Karugu, and Nwoye (2008) suggest that availability of formal school guidance and counseling programmes for learners with disabilities will enable them to gain self-acceptance, enhance their self esteem and appreciative abilities, and ultimately find joy in life.
