Showing the possibility of physical exercises performed to the music with enhanced high frequencies and vibration devices enabling “bone hearing”, in the process of stimulating development at the level of coordination abilities of children with hearing disability. This paper is report of a pilot study. Twenty five children with hearing impairment aged 10 to 13 years participated in the experiment. The subjects were randomly assigned to experimental (E) and control (C) group. The control group attended traditional dancing classes using their every day hearing aids. Audiva High Pitch Training System was used in the classes of Group E. The system consists of headphones connected with a vibration transmitter, which enables the subject to experience “bone hearing”. The device used in the experiment strengthens high frequency tones in music, most of which are not audible to people with hearing disability. Classes were held once a week in Poznan Educational Centre for Deaf Children. The evaluation of the coordination abilities’ level was conducted twice - before and after the dancing classes. The level of coordination was assessed using the Kiphard Schilling Test of Coordination (KSTC). Mann-Whitney’s U Test and Wilcoxon’s Test were used to assess changes in coordination capacity.Preliminary analysis of research data indicates that both groups improved performance in final examinations as compared to the initial ones. Individuals in the experimental group achieved slightly better results in the final tests in comparison to the control group.The use of exercises performed to the music with enhanced high pitch tones and the vibrations showed a positive impact on the level of coordination abilities of the deaf. This positive trend needs to be checked on a larger research population, selected deliberately in terms of etiology and type of hearing disability
