SELF TEACHING IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF SPEECHREADING IN DEAF CHILDREN.
NEYHUS, ARTHUR I.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF MOTION PICTURE FILMS AS A TEACHING DEVICE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF LIPREADING SKILLS AND THE USE OF A CARTRIDGE-LOAD, SELF-WINDING EIGHT MILLIMETER PROJECTOR AS A TEACHING TOOL WERE STUDIED. IT WAS HYPOTHESIZED THAT DEAF AND HARD OF HEARING CHILDREN WOULD LEARN PRESCRIBED VOCABULARY MORE QUICKLY BY AUTOINSTRUCTIONAL FILM METHODS THAN BY CONVENTIONAL METHODS. EIGHTY-NINE DEAF OR HARD OF HEARING SUBJECTS, AGES FOUR TO TEN, WERE DIVIDED INTO FOUR AGE GROUPS. DEAF SUBJECTS HAD A MINIMUM HEARING LEVEL OF 65 DECIBELS (AMERICAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION). HARD OF HEARING SUBJECTS HAD A MAXIMUM HEARING LEVEL OF 64 DECIBELS (AMERICAN STANDARDS ASSOCIATION). SUBJECTS WITHIN EACH AGE GROUP WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS. GROUP ONE WAS TAUGHT BY THE FILMS, GROUP TWO WAS TAUGHT BY THE TEACHER AND THEN PERMITTED PRACTICE WITH THE FILMS. GROUP THREE WAS TAUGHT BY THE TEACHER ONLY. RESULTS SHOWED NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE THREE GROUPS, ALTHOUGH GROUP ONE ACHIEVED THEIR MAXIMUM SCORES IN THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME. GOOD LIPREADERS LEARNED WELL UNDER ALL THE CONDITIONS, WHILE POOR LIPREADERS SHOWED LITTLE IMPROVEMENT IN ANY GROUP. THE FILM PROCEDURE COULD BE USED AS A TOOL FOR PRACTICE AND DRILL, ENABLING THE TEACHER TO DEVOTE MORE OF HER ATTENTION TO THE SLOWER PUPIL. REFERENCE LIST HAS 30 ITEMS. (JB)
