Abstract

Social adjustment remains area of great concern for hearing impaired persons from early ages. Their inability to hear and respond properly is the root-caused that isolates them from rest of the society. Therefore any help to improve their ability for oral communications can make social interaction better for the hearing impaired individuals. The present study is designed to explore new means that may improve the basic vocabulary of young deaf students and to improve their rudimentary oral ability to use it effectively. It is based on this assumption that deaf students can be taught to master a small basic vocabulary as well as to develop rudimentary oral ability which could eventually result in improving their social interaction and implicit in their social adjustment. The study is useful for the scientific search of the ways and means conducive to the proper social adjustment of the hearing impaired population. The study pinpoints that the hidden oral skills of hearing impaired can be developed for effective communication. The study depends upon the data collected during field and experimental research. The information was gathered through interview questionnaires, which were formulated for the parents and teachers separately. The practical research work designed to develop rudimentary oral ability of hearing impaired students was consisted of simple sentences having two to four words in each, related to daily usage of social life. The practical research work was proceeded by using Vibro-Graphical approach. The pre and post -test results of experimental research were also included in the data. General tables describing the frequencies and percentage of the data were formulated. The responses of both samples i.e.; parents and teachers were analyzed through correlational analysis to find out the associations and differences. The hypotheses were tested by means of t-test and chi-square. It was concluded that there is significant difference between development of oral ability of the bearing impaired students taught under traditional method and the Vibro-Graphical approach and there is significant relationship between the parents and teachers in respect to learning of sign language. It was also concluded that deprivation of oral ability is main element that resists hearing impaired persons in social interaction.
