Musselman, Carol; Kircaali-Iftar, Gonul
Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v1 n2 p108-21 Spr 1996
This study compared 20 young deaf children with either exceptionally good or exceptionally poor spoken language for their hearing loss, age, and intelligence. Factors associated with high performance included earlier use of binaural ear-level aids, better educated mothers, auditory/verbal or auditory/oral instruction, reliance on spoken language for communication, individualized instruction, integration, and structured teaching by parents.
