Audio-Visual Speech Reading; A Manual for Training the Hard-of-Hearing in Voice Communication.
Designed for persons involved in teaching the deaf and hard of hearing, the booklet provides training in the fundamentals of speech reading, a bisensory (eye plus ear) approach to communication. Basic principles in teaching speech reading are defined, including the advantages of recognition of sounds as opposed to description, use of audible and inaudible stimuli, advantages of contextual exercises, benefits of group instruction, and teaching easier sounds first. Also provided are 20 voice communication lists designed to evaluate the amount of voice which may be sent or received by a patient and a test of visual recognition ability for determining lip reading skill. Directions for using both are stated. Lessons in speech reading are included, beginning with vowels and progressing through the visible consonants to connected speech. The lessons treat recognition training (exploring the characteristics of a sound), and drills with sounds, sound combinations, and words. (JB)
