Comparison Research Between ICT-Based Design and Traditional Design for Hearing Impaired Children
There are about 27.8 million hearing impaired people in China, and among them 137 thousand are children under six. Traditional approaches of hearing and speech rehabilitation for children are using medical treatments at first and subsequently following a speech training in professional institutes, to make up the delayed speech development. It has been found that there are some weaknesses in traditional approaches.
Since the emergence of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies), they have been applied in many different fields, especially in the education field. ICTs have an obvious advantage in education. In this paper, the application of ICTs in speech training has been proposed, and a comparison with traditional speech training approaches has been made. Based on these research findings, a speech training prototype, New Voice was developed.
