Conservation and Metaphor Acquisition in Hearing-Impaired Children: Some Relationships with Communication Mode, Hearing Acuity, Schooling, and Age.
Rittenhouse, Robert K.; Kenyon, Patricia L.
American Annals of the Deaf, v136 n4 p313-20 Oct 1991
Conservation and metaphor acquisition were studied in 35 hearing-impaired children (ages 6-19) using either cued speech or oral-aural communication. Significant positive relationships were found between conservation and metaphor in both communication modes, age and metaphor, and age and conservation. Neither conservation nor metaphor was related to degree of hearing loss or communication mode. (Author/DB)
