Abstract: The aim of this study is to look into, the present conditions of educational practices that exist and prevail in primary/secondary, governmental/nongovernmental, and day/boarding special schools for the deaf. The total number of the participants of the study were 166, where 115 Hearing-Impaired students of grades 7-12, 39 special school professionals, and 12 parents/guardians of the sampled hearing-impaired students. The study revealed that the special needs educational services that are provided to the hearing-impaired students in governmental and non-governmental schools have certain disparities in terms of qualification, training and retraining of teachers, proper educational facilities and services, budget allocation, preparing and enabling deaf students to learn and work. Lack of vocational skills training guideline/strategy for deaf students' education is identified as to be the major precondition to start and continue the training. With regard to the importance of vocational education and skill training needs for the hearing-impaired students, there is obviously a very noticeable need for it. That is, 89.9%, of the respondents (sampled students, school personnel, and parents) preferred to provide vocational skills education and training for deaf students.
