Novel Word Learning in Children with Hearing Impairment.
Gilbertson, Margie; Kamhi, Alan G.
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v38 n3 p630-42 Jun 1995
This study found that word learning ability in only 10 of 20 children (ages 7-10) with hearing impairment (HI) was comparable to performance of 20 hearing children matched for receptive vocabulary knowledge. Degree of hearing loss was not related to language or word-learning abilities. Results suggest the coexistence of a language impairment for some children with hearing loss. (Author/DB)
