Sample text

Seymour et al. of Gerber's subjects and all of Engel and Groth's subjects were able to improve carryover of the correct production of their target sounds in reading aloud and conversational tasks following intrapersonal discrimination training. A summary of those studies which found that auditory discrimination/ listening activities did not facilitate correct sound production is provided in Table IV. In one of these investigations, Shelton, Johnson, Ruscello, and Arndt (1978) studied three groups of preschool children with articulation errors.

In an earlier study, Nober and Nober (1975) examined the effects of classroom noise on discrimination performance. They administered both versions of the Wepman Auditory Discrimination Test (Wepman, 1958) to a group of 20 normal and 20 learning-disabled children between the ages of 9 and 12 years. Each child was tested under two conditions, namely, (1) in a relatively quiet test room and (2) in the presence of classroom noise. Their results showed that both normal and learning-disabled children made significantly more discrimination errors in the noise condition than in the quiet condition.

Training lasted 5 minutes per day, 5 days per week, for 57 days. A second group consisted of children whose parents read to them and then talked about the stories for 15 minutes each day, 5 days each week, for 57 days. The third group served as a control and received no training. All subjects were tested posttreatment. The authors reported that no treatment effect was observed since only the control group (who had a low pretreatment noise score) demonstrated a significant gain between pre- and posttreatment measures in the noise subtest of the Test of Auditory Discrimination.
