Virtual Intervention to Improve Storytelling Ability among Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing Children
Eden, Sigal
European Journal of Special Needs Education, v29 n3 p370-386 2014
Deaf and hard-of-hearing (D/HH) children reveal considerable difficulty in producing an organised and complete narrative. The current study conducted a three-month intervention to improve D/HH children's storytelling ability through training in arranging episodes of temporal scripts, and telling the stories they created. We examined 65 D/HH children aged four-seven years who were divided into two groups: virtual reality (VR) technological intervention and pictorial intervention. Participants completed pretest and posttest measures and demonstrated significant improvement in storytelling achievements following intervention; in the VR group, the improvement was much more significant. In addition, participants at an early age at onset of treatment correlated with children's better achievements in storytelling.
