Developing Auditory Skills: A Guide to Auditory Communication Activities. Revised Edition.
Marvich, Judith W.; Lederman, Norman
The manual provides information about the development of auditory communication training for hearing impaired students. Two models of auditory training are reviewed: the Model Secondary School for the Deaf, which posits five areas of training, including awareness, attention, identification/recognition, message analysis, and comprehension/integration; and the Kendall Demonstration Elementary School which covers detection, discrimination, identification, and comprehension. Sample auditory communication activities are described for the above named topic areas, with information on objectives, equipment, teacher preparation, and instruction. A section on equipment addresses advantages and disadvantages of hardware amplifier systems, radio frequency systems, induction loop systems, and portable auditory training systems. Use of tape recorders, record players, and audiocard readers is considered. Guidelines for equipment operation and maintenance are offered. Finally, a list of equipment manufacturers and a bibliography of eight references conclude the manual. (CL)
