However, a hearing impairment not only imposes a threat to communication, but it firstly interferes with language acquisition and speech development. For hundreds of years, people have debated the best ways to provide communication skills and education for deaf and hard-of-hearing children. According to the National Institute of Deafness and other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), the earlier deafness or hearing loss is identified, the better a child’s chances of acquiring language, whether spoken or signed.

It is intended to aid preverbal infants to express their needs and wants earlier than they could otherwise. Infant sign language researchers believe that frustration and tantrums can be averted by closing the gap between desire to communicate and the ability to do so. (Acredolo & Goodwyn, 1996; Garcia, 1999). Infants from about six months of age can start learning basic signs, which cover such objects and concepts as “thirsty,” “milk,” “water,” “hungry,” “sleepy,” “pacifier,” “more,” “hot,” “cold,” “play,” “bath,” and “teddy bear.” Joseph Garcia, an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter, conducted experiments which demonstrated that infants who are exposed to signs “regularly and consistently” at six to seven months of age ... ... middle of paper ... ...ng and games, eagerly soaking up more and more signs.

These researchers stress that the ideal circumstance is to have a child implanted as early as possible, so that aural rehabilitation can be most effective. Otherwise hearing loss will persist during language learning years, and can lead to severe implications throughout the child’s life. Without sufficient auditory experiences, that child wi... ... middle of paper ... ...nts. Child Development, 84(2), 543-559. doi:10.1111/j.1467-8624.2012.01863.x Ertmer, D.

“Your child has autism spectrum disorder” are words no parent wants to hear. They are words that will instill fear, worry, and sadness. When parents hear this for the first time, they will have many questions. “Is there anything I can do to help my child? If so, what can be done?” Early intervention services; such as applied behavior analysis therapy, occupational therapy, sensory integration therapy, and speech therapy before the age of three; can help improve the development of children with autism spectrum disorder.
Recently in the United States, there has been a drive at both the state and national level to provide universal screening for newborns to detect hearing loss. Although the idea of a universal screening in newborns is a new phenomenon, research has examined the impact of early intervention and screening for children with hearing loss. “Most professionals in the field feel strongly that early identification of hearing loss and early implementation of intervention enhances the child’s social, communicative, and academic development” (Calderon, 1998, p. 54). With that, the two studies used participants in the same early intervention program and mainly focused on the importance of the age of enrollment. Furthermore, the age of enrollment was used to study the effect it had on the children after completion of the early intervention program.
Oral communication is a multisensory approach since it uses both auditory (hearing) and visual cues. While children are learning to talk they will rely on their residual hearing, speechreading, and sometimes touch. According to Tye-Murray (2009) children in oral educational programs are more likely to achieve better speech intelligibility than children in total communication programs. Tye-Murray (2009) also states that several studies have shown children who use a cochlear implant and are in an oral-communication program develop better speech and language skills, as well as better speech perception than children who communicate with sign. ... ... middle of paper ... ... children with cochlear implants: Achievement in an intensive auditory-oral educational setting.

Discussion/Conclusion As you can see, children with autism display marked deficits in initiating and maintaining social interactions. Intervention using play routines that involve parental involvement can create a framework for developing and maintaining social interactions between children and their communication partner. From the studies and my intervention mentioned above, you can see that autistic children whose parents are more involved in their lives do way better than children whose parents are not children. A weakness of the action research was that I used a total of six students; maybe with a larger number the results would of changed.
According to Bialystok and Craik (2010), the most vital cognitive achievement in early childhood is the development of the executive function system that situated in PFC; children progressively become able to switch between tasks, restrict distraction, control attention, expand working memory and oversee groups of stimuli. The authors highlight that those abilities are the ones that display the first signs of aging. Thus, the effects should be seen in the whole cognitive system across the life span if bilingualism has an impact on executive functioning (Bialystok and Craik, 2010). Further, the development, efficiency and decline of important cognitive abilities are different among bilingual and monolingual populations, according to accumulating research (Bialystok, Craik and Luk, 2012). For instance, bilingualism enhances the development of general cognitive functions that are related to attention and inhibition (Bialystok, 2005).
