Abstract

Technological advances resulting in reduced size of nonacoustic devices and professional concern about cochlear implants in young deaf children appear to be two prime factors stimulating increased interest in the application of tactile devices for teaching oral language. As cost is reduced and wearability improved, parents and school systems will be able to afford nonacoustic instruments. Teachers and clinicians will be expected to determine the most appropriate device to use in the clinic, the classroom, and the home. This comprehensive bibliography on tactile aids was prepared to serve as a resource guide for teachers and clinicians who must make informed decisions about the relative benefits of tactile aids for hearing-impaired individuals.
