Child Evaluation. UNIsensory Project.
Rhoades, Ellen A.; And Others
The report presents evaluation data on 29 deaf children (from birth to 6 years old) treated in the UNIsensory Project at the Auditory Educational Clinic in Atlanta, Georgia. A data sheet is provided for each child served in the program, with information on chronological age, severity of hearing loss (aided and unaided), length of intervention, parent and therapist estimates of the child's hearing handicap, pre- and post-test scores on language and communication tests (the Sequenced Inventory of Communication Development, Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, and the Test for Auditory Comprehension of Language), and explanation and comments. Composite data are then presented in table forms. Parent evaluation information is cited that shows high support for the project. Among conclusions noted is that the project was very successful in improving the aided thresholds of hearing impaired Ss with the use of amplification. (CL)
