Vocabulary Training of Spoken Words in Hard-of-Hearing Children
Mollink, Hannah; Hermans, Daan; Knoors, Harry
Deafness and Education International, v10 n2 p80-92 Jun 2008
This study examined the effects of using signs in spoken language vocabulary training of hard-of-hearing children. Fourteen hard-of-hearing children participated in the present study. Vocabulary training with the support of signs showed a statistically significant effect in the participants' learning and retention of new spoken language vocabulary. The results of this study provide some justification for the use of signs during spoken vocabulary instruction in hard-of-hearing children with a mild-to-moderate hearing loss. (Contains 2 tables, 2 figures, and 4 footnotes.)
