The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between the social cognitive understanding, aggressive behaviors and behavioral adjustment of deaf children. Severely and profoundly deaf children between the ages of 6-11 participated in the study. Firstly, the social cognitive understanding of deaf children was assessed through picture sequence tasks. These tasks were designed to measure the first-order belief attributions, belief-based behavior prediction, intention understanding, intention consequence discrimination, moral reasoning, emotion understanding and emotional reasoning of deaf children. CDC Aggression Scale was used to measure the aggressive behaviors and SDQ parent and teacher forms were used to measure the behavioral adjustment of deaf children. Regression analyses were conducted in order to identify the predictors of aggressive behaviors and behavioral adjustment of deaf children. Results revealed that deaf children who were not able to understand the intention of others were rated as more hyperactive. In addition to that, deaf children who were not able to discriminate between the intention fulfilled and unfulfilled situations were rated as displaying more bullying behaviors and more conduct problems. The implications and the limitations of the study were discussed considering the existing literature.
