Abstract: 
Background and Aim: Children's hearing loss affects not only their speech and language dev-elopment but also their mothers’ mental health. This study aimed to determine the effect of acc-eptance and commitment therapy (ACT) on the intolerance of uncertainty and experiential avoi-dance of mothers with hearing-impaired or deaf children. Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study with the pretest-posttest design with a control group. The study population comprised all mot-hers of hearing-impaired or deaf children (2− 6 years old) in Tabriz City, Iran. Using a purpo-sive sampling method, 32 mothers of hearing-impaired or deaf children were selected and then randomly assigned to control and experimental groups (each group, 16 subjects). The experim-ental group was treated with ACT in 8 sessions of 1. 5 hours long in two weeks. The study data were collected by the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire-II (AAQ-II) and Intolerance of Uncertainty Scale (IUS). Results: The results showed that ACT signi-ficantly increased scores on the AAQ-II and IUS in the experimental group compared to the control group (p < 0. 001). Conclusion: ACT might be an efficient way to decrease intolerance of uncertainty and avoid-ance of experience in the mothers of hearing-impaired and deaf children. Also, therapists can use this approach for improving the intolerance of uncertainty and experiential avoidance in mothers of hearing-impaired or deaf children in rehabilitation centers.
