Esbensen, Annette; Thomsen, Pia – Communication Disorders Quarterly, 2021
Word retrieval and lexical organization were explored in 16 Danish children with slight to severe hearing loss (HL), 11 children with developmental language disorder (DLD), and 25 typically developing (TD) children in the age range of 7 to 12 years. There is a special focus on children with HL with and without language difficulties compared with…

Reifinger, James L., Jr. – Music Educators Journal, 2018
Music education is being explored by researchers as a means of improving hearing acuity for children with hearing loss, particularly those with cochlear implants. Music educators are uniquely positioned to contribute to this important endeavor. This article describes normal and impaired hearing and how music perception is affected for students…

Rizk, Habib G.; Tomashitis, Brett M.; Goldberg, Donald M.; Meyer, Ted A. – Volta Review, 2017
With the advent of newborn hearing screening and state-specific early hearing detection and intervention programs, early diagnosis of children with hearing loss should increase. These children need access to rehabilitation support, hearing amplification and speech therapy, and, if appropriate, evaluation for candidacy for a cochlear implant.…

Camarata, Stephen; Werfel, Krystal; Davis, Tonia; Hornsby, Benjamin W. Y.; Bess, Fred H. – Exceptional Children, 2018
Although reading outcomes for children with hearing loss are improving, too many of these children continue to display persistent reading difficulties. Because of these difficulties, there is an ongoing need to understand the nature of the relationships among decoding abilities, language skills, and reading achievement in this population more…

Long, Johanna; Attuquayefio, Tuki; Hudson, Jennifer L. – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
Deaf/deaf or hard of hearing (DHH) children are at an increased risk of developing mental health problems, with growing evidence that they may experience greater anxiety symptoms than hearing peers. The present study investigated whether Australian children with varying degrees of hearing loss experienced increased anxiety symptoms compared to…

Lo, Chi Yhun; Looi, Valerie; Thompson, William Forde; McMahon, Catherine M. – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Purpose: A growing body of evidence suggests that long-term music training provides benefits to auditory abilities for typical-hearing adults and children. The purpose of this study was to evaluate how music training may provide perceptual benefits (such as speech-in-noise, spectral resolution, and prosody) for children with hearing loss. Method:…

Hung, Yu-Chen; Chan, Yi-Chih – Deafness & Education International, 2020
Unlike their peers with typical hearing, reading and speech challenges observed among children with hearing loss may not only be caused by developmental issues but also hearing-related problems. Although conventional oral reading assessments are useful for identifying children at risk of reading difficulties, they do not help examiners identify…

Barr, Megan; Duncan, Jill; Dally, Kerry – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2018
Children in regional, rural and remote areas have less access to services than those living in urban areas. Practitioners serving children with a hearing loss have attempted to address this gap, however there are few studies investigating service access and experiences of non-metropolitan families and professionals. This systematic review…

Lund, Emily; Douglas, W. Michael – Exceptional Children, 2016
Despite poor vocabulary outcomes for children with hearing loss, few studies have evaluated the effectiveness of specific vocabulary teaching methods on vocabulary learning for this group. The authors compared three vocabulary instruction conditions with preschool children with hearing loss: (a) explicit, direct instruction; (b) follow-in…

Laugen, Nina J.; Jacobsen, Karl H.; Rieffe, Carolien; Wichstrøm, Lars – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2016
Children with hearing loss are at risk for developing psychosocial problems. Children with mild to severe hearing loss are less frequently subject to research, in particular in preschool, and we therefore know less about the risk in this particular group. To address this, we compared psychosocial functioning in thirty-five 4-5-year olds with…

Arena, Richard M.; Walker, Elizabeth A.; Oleson, Jacob J. – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2017
Purpose: A number of studies with large sample sizes have reported lower prevalence of stuttering in children with significant hearing loss compared to children without hearing loss. This study used a parent questionnaire to investigate the characteristics of stuttering (e.g., incidence, prevalence, and age of onset) in children who are hard of…

Benítez-Barrera, Carlos R.; Thompson, Emily C.; Angley, Gina P.; Woynaroski, Tiffany; Tharpe, Anne Marie – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2019
Purpose: The impact of home use of a remote microphone system (RMS) on the caregiver production of, and child access to, child-directed speech (CDS) in families with a young child with hearing loss was investigated. Method: We drew upon extant data that were collected via Language ENvironment Analysis (LENA) recorders used with 9 families during 2…

Lowenstein, Joanna H.; Nittrouer, Susan – Language, Speech, and Hearing Services in Schools, 2021
Purpose: Better auditory prostheses and earlier interventions have led to remarkable improvements in spoken language abilities for children with hearing loss (HL), but these children often still struggle academically. This study tested a hypothesis for why this may be, proposing that the language of school becomes increasingly disconnected from…
