Articulation and two speechreading tests were administered to 42 hearing-impaired adults before and after individualized speech therapy to study: the effect of speech training on speechreading and relationships between consonant production and recognition. Analysis of pre/post scores revealed significant improvement in both production and recognition. Significant correlations were obtained between production and recognition; however, the relationship varied relative to manner and place of production. Acoustic and visual features of consonants are discussed relative to this finding.
