Adapting Speech and Auditory Training --Durkel, Jim. Austin, TX: Texas Deafblind Project. 2005 Texas Symposium on Deafblindness. (2005)Handout from a session about adapting speech and auditory training. Chart that compares auditory training for children with vision vs. children who are deafblind; segments from various sources on the the following: receptive listening skills development and expressive skill development; aspects of an auditory learning program; hierarchy of speech contrasts; using vibration in speech and auditory training; ideas for making speech and auditory training fun.


Auditory localization training model: Teamwork between audiologist and O&M specialist—pre-test with a visually impaired person using bilateral cochlear implants --Dufour, Julie; Ratelle, Agathe; Leroux, Tony; Gendron, Martine. International Congress Series, Volume 1282, September 2005, Pages 109-112. (2005)Teamwork between O&M specialist and audiologist led to the development of an auditory localization training program in order to enhance auditory localization abilities and to optimize independent, safe, and easy travel. The intensive program includes graduated exercises given in a controlled setting using Auditory Localization Evaluation System (SELA). As a pre-test, the program was applied to a new user of bilateral cochlear implants presenting a severe and progressive vision loss. Two training periods were given totaling 21 lessons. At the end of the training, the participant met the success criteria of the most advanced objectives and expressed more confidence in her capabilities. However, pre-training and post-training evaluation results were not conclusive. The pre-test allowed to improve the program structure and to question the program evaluation procedure.


Effect of Dual Sensory Loss on Auditory Localization: Implications for Intervention --Simon, Helen J., PhD; Levitt, Harry, PhD. TRENDS IN AMPLIFICATION, December 2007, Vol. 11, No. 4, pp. 259-272. (2007)Our sensory systems are remarkable in several respects. They are extremely sensitive, they each perform more than one function, and they interact in a complementary way, thereby providing a high degree of redundancy that is particularly helpful should one or more sensory systems be impaired. In this article, the problem of dual hearing and vision loss is addressed. A brief description is provided on the use of auditory cues in vision loss, the use of visual cues in hearing loss, and the additional difficulties encountered when both sensory systems are impaired. A major focus of this article is the use of sound localization by normal hearing, hearing impaired, and blind individuals and the special problem of sound localization in people with dual sensory loss.


Evaluating and Training Auditory Skills Related to Mobility for People Using Bilateral Cochlear Implants --Ratelle, Agathe; Leroux, Tony; Dufour, Julie. 14th DbI World Conference on Deafblindness Conference Proceedings, September 25-30, 2007, Perth, Australia. (2007)This is text of a workshop presentation given at the 14th DbI World Conference on Deaf-Blindness. This presentation reports on a research project for persons who have auditory and visual impairments initiated in 2002 in Quebec, aiming to document the benefits of bilateral cochlear implantation for this clientele. This ongoing clinical study intends to gather longitudinal laboratory data on localization ability. In regard to mobility, nothing was known about the usefulness of implants. The purpose of this paper is to present the resulting performance following mobility training received by seven bilateral implant recipients. Mobility training received by the two first cases, who were blind, will be thoroughly described, since these persons were interested in developing the auditory skills necessary to achieve independent outdoor travel.


In the Classroom...Children With Cochlear Implants --Nussbaum, Debra. NASDE. Counterpoint, Fall 2004. pp. 1, 10-12. (2004)Discusses the importance of programming and support for children with cochlear implants. Includes information on auditory training, program monitoring and implant technology.


My Best Hearing: With a Cochlear Implant --Mouchka, Cathy. California Deaf-Blind Services. RESOURCES, vol. 11, #3, Summer 2004, pp. 1-2. (2004) This personal narrative describes one woman's experience before and after cochlear implantation. She describes her type of hearing loss, the impact it had on her life, and how implantation made a dramatic improvement in hearing for her. Available on the web:


We Got Rhythm --Franklin, Jo. TALKING SENSE, vol. 47, #1, Spring 2001, pp. 26-27. (2001) This article describes how combining vibration with sound in auditory training can assist in developing listening and speech skills in hearing impaired children. Describes aurhythmics, a program developed in the 1970's to develop and encourage awareness of sound, stimulation of the hearing mechanism, and increased vocalization. Provides information on soundboxes, a key tool in aurhythmics.
