Speech Reading Activity for Children with Hearing Loss

Speech Reading Activity for Children with Hearing Loss



Description:  Speech reading, also sometimes referred to as lip reading, can be a crucial skill for children with hearing loss.  For this activity, talk about the different mouth shapes for different vowels and consonants.  Then, lay out a few pictures in front of the child.  Say one of the words and instruct the child to watch your lips to look for the shapes.  Help the child identify which shapes he saw and choose the correct word.  Start at normal volume and gradually increase the difficulty by including more similar words and slowly decreasing your vocal volume so the child has to rely more on the visual cues.  For a full hour-long webinar about this topic, click the link below to join our membership!
