This study aims to investigate the effect of multimedia conversational instruction style on increasing communication skills in the student’s girls with partial hearing loss in Tehran. The research method is quasi-experimental and the statistical population is composed of all elementary school 6th-graders with partial hearing loss in Tehran out of whom 15 students were randomly selected using the convenience sampling method and placed in two control and experiment groups. The instrument for data collection is Attarha Communication Skill Assessment Inventory (2007) which has three subscales. The experiment group received training in 7 sessions using the researcher-developed multimedia software program, and the control group was excluded from training. Descriptive statistics (central and dispersion indices) and inferential statistics (univariate covariance analysis) were adopted for data analysis. The results generally suggest that multimedia conversational instruction style improves communication skills including emotional management, others’ perception and self-assertion in the students with partial hearing loss. Therefore, the results indicate that multimedia conversational teaching style has a positive impact on increased communication skills in the students with partial hearing loss.
