Today there are several methods for teaching hearing-impaired and deaf children to communicate with the outside world. The French method suggests using fingerprinting (sign language) and facial expressions to communicate with hearing impaired people. It allows hearing-impaired children to talk to each other, but sets up a certain barrier in communicating with hearing-impaired children, as if they (the hearing-impaired) spoke a foreign language.

Step 1

The French method is the most common because is based on the use of natural facial expressions and logic. The German method of mastering oral speech and lip reading is less common, since it requires significant effort in teaching the hearing impaired. Children with acquired hearing impairment can successfully master the German methodology through long-term training, which allows them to socially adapt to the world around them. However, in Germany itself, the method of teaching oral speech is quite cruel, and sometimes even cruel, which the deaf and dumb themselves admit. In Russian schools for hearing impaired children, they usually use the dactylological method of teaching, with the help of which children are taught to understand each other, read and write. But parents of toddlers with hearing impairments can help their child and teach him to pronounce sounds, and then words. It is advisable to start classes from 5-7 years old in a playful way. Before class, consult with an audiologist and speech therapist.

Step 2

First of all, teach your child how to breathe freely through the mouth correctly, to draw in and out the air. It is also useful to breathe with an open mouth, take short breaths and exhalations.

Step 3

In a playful way, show your child various options for the position of lips, teeth, tongue. These organs contribute to the correct formation of sounds.

Step 4

Develop the child's attention, teach him to concentrate and imitate. Exercise in front of a mirror to see the results.

Step 5

When mastering several exercises and positions of the lips and tongue, draw the child's attention to vibration, shaking of certain parts of the body when pronouncing sounds, to the flow of incoming and outgoing air. Invite him to try to reproduce these movements.

Step 6

Work with your child daily. Don't force things. After learning how to reproduce sounds, teach him to put sounds into simple one-syllable words, interjections. Then move on to words using fingerprint and pictures. Also, do not neglect the wide possibilities that the hearing aid has to offer.
