Abstract: The main purpose of this study was to investigate on the impact of teaching learners with hearing impairment using Total Communication Method. The researcher used data collected from teachers of Kerugoya School for the Hearing Impaired in Kirinyaga District in the month of March 2009. The study was to investigate on the effects of Total Communication, benefits of Total Communication and challenges faced while teaching using Total Communication. The results were analyzed, using tables. The analysis showed that this method is effective in teaching learners with hearing impairments. The learner has a lot of benefits because the method concentrates on individual child's needs. However, Total Communication faces some challenges or limitations because however much one may try to use it a gap is always there. The study sought to bridge the gap so the researcher made some recommendations which could be implemented by the government, teachers, parents and the entire community to bridge the gap.
