This research is to suggest a mobile game program for rehabilitation of the hearing impaired. The suggested program is based on the characteristics of hearing-impaired children and the classification of hearing loss. The voice recognition technology is the most intimate way of delivery of information. The suggested program does not require any additional learning or training course, but enables the hearing impaired to do vocal exercises through games and helps them to enjoy rehabilitation training.
