Background: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of auditory rehabilitation of deaf children on the stress, anxiety, depression and life expectancy of their parents.
Materials and Methods: The study was a comparative study and the population studied was all parents of deaf children in Khoramabad and Noorabad, cities in Loresran  in 2017. Accordingly, 60 parents with deaf children were selected by a non-random sampling method. The children of 30 fathers and mothers (15 fathers and 15 mothers) received hearing rehabilitation services, and the children of thirty parents (15 fathers and 15 mothers) did not receive audiotory rehabilitation services. To measure the variablility of the research, the questionnaire of stress, anxiety and depression (doss21, libond&libond1987) and hope questionnaire (miller,1998) were used. Data was analyzed by multi-variable analysis of variance.
Results: The results of this study showed that there was no significant difference between stress, anxiety, depression and life expectancy of parents who had hearing impaired children (early hearing rehabilitation) and parents whose children had not teceived early rehabilitation.
Conclusion: According to the reseatch finding, it seems that factors such as social class, quality of life, educational status and the low frequency of parents of deaf children in the geographical areas studied are more effective in anxiety, stress, depression and life expectancy than hearing rehabilitation services for children.
