Abstract

This study was designed to examine the relationship between attitude, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control towards parents’ intention in sending their child to the audiologist. A sample of 76 parents with hearing impaired child all over the Peninsular of  Malaysia was involved in this research. A set of questionnaire was used for data collection. The theory of planned behavioral (TPB) was able to understand  the link  between human intention and their behavior. In this study the researcher looked at parents behavior in bringing their child to Audiologist. In order to achieve this a set of questionnaire was adapted from Jusoh (2011). The result showed that there was correlation between attitude, subjective norms and perceived behavioral control towards parents’ intention in sending their child to the audiologist. However, there was no correlation between intentions and behavior  towards parents intention in sending their child to the audiologist.
