Speechreading in Context: A Guide for Practice in Everyday Settings

Author: James Lee

A revision of David Deyo's Speechreading in Context, this paper introduces speechreading concepts and discusses theories in the context of practice rather than in isolation. In addition to activities for use in the classroom or community, the guide also illustrates how parents, teachers, and speech therapists can help students learn alternative approaches and repair strategies when communication breaks down. The activities included are designed for almost any type of program for deaf and hard of hearing children or communication philosophy.

This is a Sharing Ideas paper. The “Sharing Ideas” series comprises working or occasional papers of interest to parents and professionals working with deaf and hard of hearing children. Works in the series are often prepared for a specific ‘occasion’ and include papers, presentations, or final reports that address a need in the field or contribute to the growing body of knowledge about educating deaf and hard of hearing children. The intent of the series is to act as a clearinghouse for sharing information from a number of sources.
