This article presents the findings of a two-fold investigation. First, the demographic distribution of unilateral hearing loss in a large school district having approximately 54,000 students is reported. Second, the academic performance of the unilaterally hearing-impaired students is presented. The findings suggest that a unilateral hearing loss may have an adverse effect on some students' performance, contrary to the conventional attitude regarding this disorder.
