Problem solving abilities are important survival skills in real life. How one solves problems reveals his cognition and language use. The purpose of this study is to assess and analyze Taiwanese hard-of-hearing children's problem solving abilities. Generally speaking, hard of hearing children have poorer language abilities and communication performances. Therefore, it is important to know their current problem solving abilities and provide useful information for teaching them these important skills. 16 hearing children and 22 hard-of-hearing children participated in this study. Modified Test of Problem Solving 3 (TOPS3-M) was used to assess participants' problem solving abilities and Speech-Language Disorders Rating Scale was used to assess hard of hearing participants' oral language abilities. In addition, questionnaire was used to provide daily observations of hard of hearing participants' problem solving abilities by their parents. Results show that hearing children have better problem solving abilities than the hard of hearing children do. However, if the hard of hearing child has good oral language abilities, performance is as good as a hearing child. Therefore, language abilities can predict one's problem solving abilities. In addition, age is another factor affecting one's problem solving in the hearing group
