Speech for the Deaf Child: Knowledge and Use.
Connor, Leo E., Ed.
Presented is a collection of 16 papers on speech development, handicaps, teaching methods, and educational trends for the aurally handicapped child. Arthur Boothroyd relates acoustic phonetics to speech teaching, and Jean Utley Lehman investigates a scheme of linguistic organization. Differences in speech production by deaf and normal hearing children are reviewed by Harry Levitt, while J. M. Pickett surveys developments in speech research and communication. Boyd V. Sheets considers parameters of speech development, and John W. Black summarizes disorders of speech. Then Freeman McConnell examines a psychology of communication, followed by D. M. C. Dale's views on social aspects of speech. Speech acquisition is briefly discussed by Sophie L. French; speech curriculum is discussed by Eleanor Vorce; and Marjorie E. Magner advocates that teaching methods be founded on a multisensory approach and on child psychological and physiological growth. Relationship of speechreading and speech is analyzed by Pauline M. Jenson, and language and hearing are analyzed by Audrey A. Simmons. In viewing educational trends, Patricia A. Scherer covers teacher education, Winifred N. Northcott covers infant education and home training, and William G. Hardy covers speech trends. (CB)
