Speechreading Final

Speech Reading dates back to...
the 16th century and was a big part of oral education
Speech Reading Methods (4)
Jena, Mueller-Walle, Nitchie Method, Kinzie Method
Started in the 1870's in germany for deaf and hard of hearing adults. It uses analytic drills and memorization. Incorporated basic principles of kinesthesis (awareness of movement), mimetic (imitating movements), and rhythm. Developed by Brauckman, promoted by Bunger.
started in the 1900's in Germany but appeared in US by 1902. It was a six week course focusing on rapid syllable drills and rhythmic speech. Started with most visible sounds and went to less visible. (Bruhn)
Nitchie Method
-Started in 1912
-"Expressive reading"
-Started with analytic approach and used mirror
-Later began using synthetic approach (need to grasp language as whole expressions
-Used psychological principles when developing training methods
Kinzie Method
-Started in 1931
-Studied the Nitchie method
-Opened her own school using Mueller-Walle method
-Combined Nitche's psychological principles with Mueller--Walle's methods "to develop a graded series of speechreading exercises"

Bruhn, Kinzie, and Nitchie
All had hearing until adulthood and then had sudden loss. They sought assistance and developed their methods.
Analytic approach
Perceive each of the basic parts before the whole can be identified.
Syllable is the basic unit.
Bruhn and Jena methods
Synthetic Approach
Perception of the whole is paramount to perception of the basic parts.
Sentence is the basic unit.
Nitchie and Kinzie methods
Holistic Approach
increase child's knowledge of speechreading, generate strategies, increase confidence, increase tolerance for situations, increase goal setting, increase motivation to improve

Homophenous words
Knowledge of topic of conversation
closed set
is the set of choices or possible answers that should be known before listening( dressing bear ) short vs long
Parameters of pattern perception
items in a set should increase
Ongoing stage of pattern perception
syllable structure. jeep vs ambulance
Role of speech in listening activities
child needs to take turns during speech activities
Closed sets and segmental identification
when success occurs increase the size of the set and use different words with more similar sounds
Auditory comprehension
final developmental stage in listening
Parent-Child Activities
initial book reading for post implant children maybe done face to face
power of parent at home
parents shouldn't underestimate the power they have on their childrens listening lives
English as an Oral language
despite the fact that it has a written form it can be accesed visually it was designed to be heard and spoken
Learning language
languages are not taught to young children, children learn language through every day use
Cued speech
set of hand symbols to support the recognition of the spoken english through speech reading
Cochlear implant for language learning
has four principles
Principle one
there is a unique relationship between listening and languag
principle two
the world is a place to be narrated, parents who continually narrate and offer commentary
Principle three
Every opportunity for speaking
Principle four
Language growth occurs through exchanges with a mature language
the philosophy of inclusion is based on the belief that a student's primary point of service delivery is in the general education classroom
Educational choices
schools for deaf children, schools for deaf using ASL, Private oral schools, day school with sim com, regional programs and self-contained classes within a public school for children with implants
Characteristics of schools that support children with Implants
teachers and auxillary personnel are knowledge of audiotry skills development and make a commitment to integrate opportunities for listening and speaking into every day routine
AV techniques
Hand cue, pause time, use parent as model, following child, acoustical highlighting, acoustical spacing, expansion
AV principles and Practices
Early identification, best technology, connect sound with meaning, teach child to respond to sound, follow normal development problems and mainstream child.
Children's brains are
wired for learning language through sound. This is how they naturally acquire it
develops use of residual heating to develop listening skills. requires intense participation, follows natural progression promotes mainstreaming
Oral approach
relies on speech reading and visual cues to teach spoken language, promotes mainstreaming
Lip reading is taught by
Print, TV, video tapes and computer technolgy
How many computer programs are available
7 in the world (bloomsburg is one)
Advantages to self taugh
Non-threatening environment of home
Flexibility of learning
ease of access
children learn language through
the auditory channel
Av therapists
follow the lead of the child, focuses on appropriate vocalizations, notice what the child notices, work at phrase level, expand what the child has said, work above the level to encourage growth, and use repition
BEEBE program
sets of cards with pictures that take the hearing impaired child from babble to phrase
Inventor of Cued speech
Dr. Orin Cornett
Cued Speech
use of hand cues to reduce confusion produced by homophenous words.
Cued speech contains
four hand positions, eight hand shapes, it's used as an aid to speech reading and is considered a manual mode
considerations when choosing:
Age of hearing loss, age of amplification, degree/ configuration, intelligence and responsibility of parents
Age of hearing loss
loss before language requires more work
age of amplification
amplified earlier will develop language faster
degree/configuration of loss
mild can obtain language through amplification, severe will require work
Intelligence/ innate abilities
children with higher ability levels can obtain language quicker
Responsibility of parents
parents must devote time and effort
With the AV approach
listening should be incorporated into the child's total personality
unisensory approach
child must lock in using listening skills
specific techniques
use of hand cue, acoustical highlighting, and acousitcal spacing
specific cirriculum
follows normal language progression
cochlear implant rehabilitation
developed by AV international
emphasis on phrase level
used to motivate language. communicative intent is supposed to be meaningful and communications is the priority
intense and diagnostic individual AV
child and parent. Parent instruction on facilitating speech
AV protocol
parents who chose AV have a dream for their child.
hand cue
sign that you are talking and that it is childs turn to speak
pause time
wait for child to vocalize
using parent as model
the parent can give response first
following child
therapist follow the childs lead whenever appropriate
acoustical highlighting
target word in a phrase maybe given more acoustical properties and emphasis
acoustical spacing
target words need a fraction of silence before them
putting communication
take utterance made by child and transform it into langagu
expand on child's languag
making choices
makes choices back on auditory info
AV international
heighten public awareness, ensure certification, provide quality education, and facilitate netwoks
Speech Reading is the process
of understanding a speaker by watching his mouth movements, facial expressions, gestures and body language
