Limited Immersion in Cued Speech: A Case Study.
Gordon, Malcolm; And Others
The case study examines the effects on the receptive and expressive English language of a deaf 14 year old after a period of limited language immersion using Cued Speech, in which every sound in a word is represented both expressively and receptively. In a four week period the S spent approximately 14 hours per week with a modeler who cued speech throughout a range of activities. Results of tests measuring expression, comprehension, reception and syntax, indicated that accuracy in receiving cued sentences improved from pre- to posttesting, although reception of cued syllables and words was much more accurate in pretesting than reception of sentences; cued speech functioned as a clear representation of spoken English while it did not appreciably supplement the S's auditory processing of speech; the rate of cued speech expression improved markedly; and there was slight evidence to indicate improvement in English syntax.
