Abstract

In administering speech therapy to children with normal hearing and functional articulation difficulties, it was noted that some children made little voluntary use of visual cues; eye contact between therapist and student during direct articulation therapy was infrequent. This observation led the examiner to seek a possible relationship between articulation ability and the ability to use visual cues, specifically in speechreading. To test the hypothesis of a possible inverse relationship between the speechreading ability of a normal hearing sample of children with articulation problems and a matched sample of children with normal speech, the examiner chose twenty-five children with functional articulation difficulties and twenty-five children with normal articulation.
