The importance of reading
Research shows that reading aloud is the single most important activity for developing the knowledge that leads to success in reading. Research also shows that reading aloud to children promotes their growth across domains including listening, language, literacy, cognition, play and social-emotional skills. Children who are deaf or hard of hearing experience delays in all these domains due to their hearing loss. Therefore, reading aloud becomes even more important for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
