Abstract

Intensive speech and language stimulation with adequate amplification improves speech and language communication skills of hearing impaired students in special schools. The dearth of qualified professionals who understand the physiological and psychological aspects of the impairment is a major contributing factor to delay or lack of speech and language acquisition post hearing aid fitting, even when other issues seemingly become resolved.
