Speech Training for Young Adults Who Are Congenitally Deaf: A Case Study.
Plant, Geoff
Volta Review, v100 n1 p5-17 Win 1998
This paper describes the approach to speech training used with a young congenitally deaf adult. Two tactile aids (Tactaid VII and Tactaid 2000+) were used to provide feedback on speech production. Following a one-year training period, listeners with normal hearing were able to understand about 90 percent of the subject's words in an auditory-visual presentation. (Contains references.) (DB)
