Robinshaw, Helen M.
Early Child Development and Care, v119 p73-100 May 1996
Case studies examined impact of early intervention on the rate of acquisition of communicative and linguistic behaviors for a small group of severely and profoundly deaf infants. Found that infants who were diagnosed and used amplification by six months of age acquired vocal and linguistic skills at an age more comparable to hearing peers than did infants diagnosed later.
