Children with hearing loss are at risk of having difficulties in developing social-emotional competences compared to their peers. In Vietnam, so far, there has been no research on the social-emotional competence of hearing-impairedchildren. This paper aims to evaluate the reliability of the DASSE mini scale in using it to assess the social-emotional competence of children with hearing loss. This study used SPSS.20 software to evaluate the reliability and exploratory factor analysis (EFA) of the scale. A cross-sectional study on assessing social-emotional competence with the DASSE mini scale was conducted on 50 hearing-impaired students aged 6-12 years with varying degrees of impairment. The results of the evaluation of predictive validity show that the scale has high reliability and has good and suitable predictive value: Cronbach's Alpha = 0.928, KMO = 0.869 (> 0.05), sig. = 0.000 (sig Bartlett's Test < 0.05). The average score of the DASSE mini scale is: Mean =16.67. There are 56% of the students with social-emotional competence scores in the range of "Typical scores" and 44% with scores of "Need for instruction". There was no significant difference between male and female students in the study (t(50) = .377, p > .05), but the results showed annegative correlation between one’s degree of hearing loss and their social-emotional competence (r = -549, sig < .005).
