Abstract: In recent years, the question of countermeasures for the welfare of the disabled and the insane has become of great importance in this country. However, there are extremely few medical studies available on the speech impediments caused by hearing disorders, notwithstanding their long history. The present study aims at taking a comprehensive view from the standpoint of rehabilitation on how to take measures to counter such children with physical handicaps. The subjects were 50 deaf children who had undergone the speech training by lip reading alone. The method employed in this study consisted of the air-conduction test, bone-conduction test, and otological exmination, from which efforts were made to classify the hearing types and the hearing disorders types they had possessed. In addition to these, the articulation intelligibility test, conversation intelligibility test; sound spectrographic test and X-ray motion film test of articulatory movements were carried out. What can be said from the results of these tests is that the speech disorders of the deaf children are abnormalities arising from the speech training by lip reading alone in utter disregard of their residual hearing acuity. In order, therefore, to diminish these disorders, positive application of the acoupedic treatment, which is a speech therapy using residual hearing acuity from early childhood, will be highly recommendable in this country also.
