Developing Symbolic Thinking in Hearing-Impaired Children.
Knobloch-Gala, Anna; Kaiser-Grodecka, Irmina
Thirty hearing impaired students (11-14 years old) participated in a study to measure classification principles using demonstration or display of labels containing relevant words or iconic signs. Three methods of teaching classificatory principles were employed: demonstration, verbal labels, or iconic labels. Analysis of mistakes made by Ss revealed that in each case the use of iconic signs guaranteed better results. Iconic signs allowed for a more precise definition and a better separation of a part from a larger whole than did verbal signs. (Author/CL)
