Abstract: This study investigated the efficacy of group rehabilitation therapy on psycho-social adjustment of persons with hearing impairment in Benue State. Five research questions and five hypotheses guided the study. A quasi-experimental design based on non-equivalent control group design was used for the study. A total of 40 hearing impaired (male 20, females 20) students participated in the study. The respondents were selected through purposive sampling technique. The researcher used a self-developed instrument, tagged “Group Rehabilitation Therapy Efficacy Questionnaire (GRTEQ)”. The instrument was subjected to face and content validity. The reliability of the instrument was tested with Cronbach Alpha which yielded a reliability coefficient index of 0.97. The researcher and three recruited and trained research assistants administered the instrument designed for collection of data for the study. Means and standard deviation were used to answer the research questions, while t-test statistic was used to test the hypotheses at .05 level of significance. The findings of the study revealed that group rehabilitation therapy has a significant effect on persons with hearing impairment, sense of belonging, sense of social security, tolerance, interpersonal interaction and self-esteem. The study concluded that Group Rehabilitation Therapy (GRT) is effective in treating persons with hearing impairment in Benue State. It was recommended, among others, that professional therapists, counsellors as well as other related professionals like social welfare, workers should assist persons with hearing impairment during therapeutic and counselling sessions or workshops using Group Rehabilitation Therapy and its principles against maladjusted acts or behaviours of persons with hearing impairment.
