Coexistence of Communication Disorders: Speech Characteristics of Children with Slight Hearing Impairment.
This study evaluated whether slight decrements in hearing sensitivity are associated with other communicative deficits. Data from the 38,497 students included in the National Speech and Hearing Survey (NSHS) were used to partition students into three categories of hearing sensitivity, and the prevalence of other communicative problems was computed for each hearing category. Results showed that among children with only slightly decreased hearing, problems with articulation and voice deviance were evident. No relationship was found between minimal hearing impairment and stuttering. (JDD)
