It is a well-recognized fact that
hearing is critical to the development of speech, language and listening
skills. Once hearing loss is identified and a child is fitted with appropriate
...ices, intervention is recommended to promote the development of
speech, language, and listening. Children with hearing loss are often
referred to a speech and language therapist to develop speech, language and
listening skills. Speech and language therapists are, however, not always
available, and a weekly session at a therapist alone is not sufficient to
develop these skills. Family members and caregivers play a critical role in the
development of a child's speech, language and listening skills, as they
interact with the child daily. Regardless of whether there is regular access to
speech-language therapy, there is much that parents and family members can do
at home to develop these skills.
book is intended to give parents, caregivers, and family members ideas for fun
activities which you and your child can do to stimulate language development
and listening at home. This book is divided into twelve lessons and each lesson
contains a parent article, language and listening activities and a parent
feedback sheet. Activities are selected to form part of your daily routine, and
therefore no additional time is needed to perform them. Guidelines are also
provided to make inexpensive toys with everyday items. It further includes
information on the importance of music for language and listening development.

How much do your students comprehend when given information through total communication? Do they understand information better in noise? What about information given verbally only? If you want clear c
...ut data on their best receptive language mode, then this is the tool for you!! The teacher/clinician reads 4 short passages and asks questions in different modes of communication-total communication, sign language, orally with noise and orally without noise. (Free passages and questions are available on readworks.org and k5learning.org). After scoring the student's answers, conclusions can be drawn about a student's preferred receptive language modality. This data can be used to justify interpreter services, the need for DHH instruction or to give accommodations for noisy classroom situations.
