Question and answer
how to support child with hearing impairement to communicate
If the child is part of the deaf community and/or his parents are also deaf, it is possible that he may not follow an “oral / aural” route of language development and use sign language. [ Sign language is a proper language encompassing a wide vocabulary and grammatical structure and also involving facial expression. Individual countries have their own signs and often areas in a single country will have some regional differences (like having a local dialect or accent). Other children with hearing aids or cochlear implants will follow an oral / aural route and have auditory training and learn
speech sounds. There are different approaches to help with speech and language development. An effective habilitation and treatment for many cochlear implant wearers is Auditory-Verbal therapy. This approach focuses on listening and sound awareness as this is the most natural and efficient way that children learn speech. Auditory–Verbal therapy takes advantage of every possible opportunity to listen and learn through the day, using the child’s environment as a learning tool. Children with mild to moderate losses may require more conventional speech therapy, although will benefit from some sound awareness and discrimination work. Although not encouraged with auditory-verbal therapy, some children with severe hearing loss and standard hearing aids may also learn some sign language alongside some speech work. ]
