Successful implementation of educational integration for children with hearing impairment means a step closer to full, equal involvement in the hearing society.Teachers’ attitudes towards the process of educational integration are of great importance since they directly affect theiractions, and through the education process, these same teachers influence the attitudes of students, parents and other teachers. The results of this study have shown that primary school teachers,included in the study, have positive attitudes towards the process of integration and the impact it has on hearing impaired students. But they also showed some problems that hinder further progress.The greatest dissatisfaction teachers have expressed towards the material conditions in the schools and the professional support they are provided to acquire the competences necessary to work with hearing impaired students. Teachers are aware that competences acquired during their education are not enough to successfully integrate students with hearing impairment, but they express willingness to invest additional effort to acquire the skills they need. Educational integration is an important step towards what we strive for, inclusive education and inclusive society.
