Abstract

A total of 31 hearing impaired students who were enrolled in higher education institutions underwent assessment tests to examine their career development. As a result, Holland’s hexagon model, based on occupation selection theory, was largely confirmed, and the vocational interests of hearing-impaired students were presumed to have almost the same structure as those of hearing students. However, in some cases, that model was not confirmed, and the background suggests the existence of a view on occupations specific to the hearing impaired. It was also suggested that students with cochlear implant could delay career development. In the future, we will improve the measure and investigate the problem again using prospective longitudinal studies.
