Without being understood oral language cannot be an efficient and safe way in the communication process, and in this case, the language cannot exercise its primary function of communication. The current study aims to highlight the degree of development of speech intelligibility for students with hearing disability who are using digital hearing aids and those with cochlear implants.
Recordings were made with students reading lists of words and sentences, witch played to three inexperienced listeners that had to write down transcription the words correctly perceived from the students reading.
The main reason for the selection of this topic is to show that speech intelligibility of children with digital hearing aids and cochlear implant is influenced by many factors that have an impact on oral language development. Among them there are: the type of dyspraxy dating aid used, the degree of hearing loss, the communication mode used, the beginning of intervention for recovery.
This clinical term was treated very differently according to which explanatory model was adopted. Nowadays, it is used to refer to developmental coordination disorder in view of its neuro-developmental origin. In any case, the actual clinical situations vary and are often complex. In our opinion, it is first necessary to examine the differential diagnosis: apraxia in children caused by lesions, dysgraphia, simply delayed dyspraxy dating development, non-verbal learning disability syndrome, hemispheric specialisation deficits, pervasive developmental disorders autisms, Asperger syndrome, atypical autism and other pervasive developmental disordersmixed specific developmental disorders, multiple developmental disorder, and children with high potential.
Speech intelligibility of students with hearing disability can be improved by applying appropriate strategies and individualized recovery. Keywords: hearing impairment, speech intelligibility, cochlear implant, hearing aids, speech and dyspraxy dating, auditory-verbal therapy.
