Speechreading in Context: A Guide for Practice in Everyday Settings. A Revision of David Deyo's Work. Sharing Ideas.
This guide to teaching speechreading skills to deaf elementary grade children offers an experiential, synthetic (rather than analytic) approach to acquisition of receptive spoken language through realistic and meaningful activities. Introductory material considers the importance of practice in speech reading, ways to individualize the activities for different ability levels, and alternate strategies. Lesson planning is guided with a standard format that involves prediction of possible vocabulary usage, practice, role play, and use in real life situations. Twelve activities are described that apply this format for the following topics or situations: greetings, family vocabulary, colors, numbers, names, seasons, answers and comments, commands and questions, emergency situations, restaurant (fast food), restaurant (dine-in), and a doctor's office.
