  Abstract :

The prevalence of moderate to profound hearing loss in children, including sensorineural hearing loss and conductive hearing loss is 1 to 6 of 1000, of which, 10% have hearing levels that fall in the profound range. Balance deficit which may interfere with normal motor development and sensory integration is often observed in deaf children. Physical or occupational therapists have not been actively involved in the multidisciplinary team working with the deaf child.AIM: - To Compare The Effect Of Conventional Balance Training Alone & Conventional Balance Training With Visual Feedback Activities In Children With Sensorineural DeafnessMETHODOLOGY:-An An Experimental Study done on 30 Children with bilateral sensorineural deafness, Age Group: 8.8 1.9 (Mean SD) including 17 boys and 13 girls with Pediatric Berg balance score < 46 , from Pune Region, by Purposive Sampling technique. Participants were divided into two groups: Group (conventional group) A & Group (experiment) B by random allocation. Pre-intervention assessment was done using a paediatric Berg balance scale & forward reach test. Participants in both groups were given conventional balance training. Group B Participants were received additional activities as balance training with visual feedback. STATISTIC ANALYSIS:-Paired t test: - A significant difference at p
