Multimedia Storybooks: Supporting Vocabulary for Students Who Are Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing
Donne, Vicki; Briley, Margaret L.
International Journal of Special Education, v30 n2 p94-106 2015
A single case study examined the use of multimedia storybooks on the vocabulary acquisition of 7 preschool students who are deaf/hard of hearing in two classrooms at a school for the deaf in the U.S. Participants also included 3 speech-language pathologists. Students spent an average of 7.1 minutes daily working with the multimedia storybooks and results indicated that the average vocabulary words independently identified correctly in isolation and in the context of sentences doubled over the course of the study (5 weeks). Differentiated instruction was provided through the use of three levels of storybooks and 6 of the students benefited from this differentiated instruction. Results indicated that increased vocabulary development may be supported by the use of multimedia storybooks.
