This research explores the effectiveness of digital strategies in addressing learning difficulties in mathematics for students with hearing impairment. Findings from 237 special education teachers reveal positive perceptions regarding the impact of interactive manipulatives, multimedia resources, gamified apps, assistive technologies, and adaptive learning platforms. While acknowledging the benefits, reservations exist, particularly regarding adaptive platforms. Variances in opinions based on demographic factors highlight the nuanced nature of teacher perspectives. The study recommends targeted training for teachers and ongoing support to enhance accessibility. This research contributes valuable insights to the discourse on inclusive education for students with hearing impairment, emphasizing the need for well-rounded digital strategies in mathematics intervention.
