VERBAL AND NONVERBAL LEARNING IN CHILDREN INCLUDING THOSE WITH HEARING LOSSES.
GAETH, JOHN H.
AN EXTENSIVE STUDY WAS MADE OF PAIRED-ASSOCIATE LEARNING IN CHILDREN WITH NORMAL HEARING AND WITH SEVERE HEARING LOSSES IN WHICH THE MATERIAL HAS BEEN PRESENTED AUDITORILY, VISUALLY AND AUDIOVISUALLY AND IN WHICH MEANINGFULNESS AND VERBALNESS HAVE BEEN VARIED. THE CONCLUSION WHICH EMERGES IS THAT "MEANINGFULNESS" IS THE MOST IMPORTANT VARIABLE THAT WAS MANIPULATED. THE MOST SURPRISING FINDING IN THE RESEARCH WAS THE LACK OF INFLUENCE OF VERBALNESS UPON THE RESULTS. HOWEVER, SINCE INTRA-LIST SIMILARITY AND DISCRIMINABILITY WERE NOT CONTROLLED EXPERIMENTALLY, FURTHER RESEARCH IS NEEDED BEFORE FINAL ASSESSMENT CAN BE MADE OF THE RELATIVE IMPORTANCE OF THESE VARIABLES.
