The study of the communicative competence of older teenagers with hearing difficulties is a painful problem. During the period of adolescence interpersonal communication becomes a flagship activity in which young people learn standards of interaction, shape individual models of behavior and communication. Due to hearing disorders, the development of communication and a feeling of being a subject of communication in society become compromised. It is diagnostics and subsequent correction of communicative competence that greatly contribute to further social adjustment within the society. The examination of communicative competence of adolescents encompasses three components: emotional-motivational – the need for contacts, motives, attitudes, goals and personal values; cognitive – psychological knowledge of interpersonal communication, the image of an interlocutor as communication partner; behavioral – individual patterns of behavior and control. The results of the study showed that the communicative competence of teenagers with haring difficulties is at a medium level of development or lower. One can also observe the decreased levels of empathy, communicative control, the need for communication. These adolescents exhibit poor communicative skills and aptitudes, a high level of emotional barriers in the course of interpersonal interaction. The correction-and-development program designed and implemented by the authors made it possible to improve all indicators under study.

Keywords communicative competence, non-verbal communication, older teenagers with hearing disorders, dance movement therapy.
