Abstract: 

Hearing loss in critical ages or before it often leads to serious damage to the lingual and verbal ability in children. It causes limitation, sensational problems and disability in communication and consequently creates isolation, depression sociopsycological and emotional problems. Therefore it is necessary to help a child to experience hearing, systemically and be able to hear sounds easier and also to distinguish between them. We are able to achieve this goal by auditory training program; consequently one will be able to use his remains of hearing ability for sound perception in the best way.
In this experimental study 52 deaf children (under the age of 7 years) were studied in Hamadan. They were divided in two groups, each consist of 26 children on the basis of their IQ and the degree of loss of hearing. In test group the children were familiarized with sign communication method and also with verbal communication method, while children in control group only used sign language for communication and they had no information about verbal communication method.
The research findings showed implication of auditory training program caused lingual and verbal development in children under 7 year in Hamadan. Children with more hearing remains had better verbal lingual growth than those with less hearing remains. Also there was no relation between sex and age and verbal lingual growth in this group. In other word familiarity with verbal communication method is the main factor for verbal lingual growth in this group.
Finding revealed that after administering auditory training program, distinguishing and identifying verbal and nonverbal method developed better than control group.
