Visual Memory of Deaf Students in Comparison with Normally Hearing Students of Similar Ages.
Golden, Emanuel
Compared was the visual memory of 18 deaf and 18 normal hearing children (7- to 12-years-old). Ss' visual discrimination and visual memory were tested with filmstrip materials from Project LIFE (Language Improvement to Facilitate Education). Time scores and error scores were used to measure the performances of both groups. Results showing that deaf Ss scored as well or better than the hearing Ss in all tested activities indicated that the memories of deaf children for visually significant stimuli may be at least as strong and persistent as the memories of hearing children, and that attention could be focused on more and better utilization of significant visual aids in the education of the deaf.
