Creating a Sound Start to Literacy: Creating a Sound Start to Literacy: How Tablet-Based Intervention Can Improve Phonological Awareness Skills of Pre-Schoolers who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing?
Dr Megan Gilliver and Research Speech Pathologist Jodie Belshaw from Australian Hearing Services, research division, National Acoustic Laboratories (NAL) will present on the findings from the research which focussed on:
- is parent-led delivery of a tablet-based phonological awareness (PA) program effective for pre-schoolers with a hearing loss?
- what type of support do parents find beneficial for delivering tablet-based PA programs?
Evidence will be provided regarding PA instruction for children who are DHH, including important insights into the benefits and barriers facing home-based intervention programs.
