The objective of the work is to identify and analyze somatometric indicators of children’s bodies of secondary school age with hearing impairments. The methods of the research: in order to achieve the set goal we used the method of anthropometry and methods of mathematical statistics. The results of the study showed that boys aged 11-12 years have significantly lower weight and body length than girls of the same age.
