Summary

Reported were performance data for over 350 hearing impaired children who were exposed to the perceptual training filmstrips from the Language Improvement to Facilitate Education (LIFE) program. Research on the visual perception of deaf persons was reviewed and found to support the following conclusions: there appears to be a relationship between hearing loss and deficient visual perceptual abilities; decreased visual perception skills have a positive relationship with poor reading abilities; remedial training in perceptual skills can enhance reading abilities; and the theoretical framework proposed to explain these effects involves a breakdown in sensory integration between the visual and auditory sensory mode. It was explained how visual perceptual skills form an important part of a language development program. Data for each filmstrip was tabulated to indicate the number of students (3- to 13-years-old) on which the data was tabulated, the mean number of errors, the standard deviation of errors, and the range of errors. Other data indicated the percentage of 6-year-old children making specific number of errors and the cumulative percentages by units and sections of the LIFE program. Appendixes included outlines of field test filmstrips, the perceptual training contents of the field test filmstrips, examples of association frames in visual perceptual areas, field test filmstrips, examples of association frames in visual perceptual areas, field test reporting forms, revisions made on the visual perceptual filmstrips following field evaluation, and a comparison of the field test filmstrip identification and the General Electric/LIFE filmstrip identification.
