Summary/Abstract: This study examines the connection between career indecision of deaf and hard of hearing students and gender, age, the number of school years completed, the level of hearing impairment, the primary mode of communication and general performance at school at the end of a school term. The sample was comprised of 97 deaf and hard of hearing students attending seventh and eighth grades of primary school as well as all grades of secondary school who are educated in special schools for deaf and hard of hearing on the territory of Serbia. Osipow’s (Osipow, 1980) “Career Decision Scale” was used as the instrument, which was adjusted to cognitive and linguistic abilities of deaf and hard of hearing students for the purpose of this study. The results which the study gave following the data analysis point to the connection between career indecisiveness of deaf and hard of hearing students and the number of school years completed, age and general performance at school, while the correlation between gender, the level of hearing impairment and the primary mode of communication and career indecision of the examinees has not been confirmed.
