Summary This chapter synthesizes the findings of a number of recent studies conducted by the authors. The focus will be on spoken interactions between school-aged students who are deaf and hard of hearing, and their hearing peers. Many of the participants in these studies have worn hearing aids and/or cochlear implants since infancy and have been educated in inclusive settings. The context of these studies includes face-to-face interactions during a question/answer game, in free conversation, and during an expository task. This chapter will examine the verbal and nonverbal conversational skills 'of these students within these different contexts. Using a range of quantitative and qualitative analyses, the development of pragmatic skills in students with hearing loss will be documented, and possible implications for language support and the development of social skills will be discussed.
