The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of a manual phonics intervention program on the phonics acquisition skills of kindergarten students with hearing impairments. Recent research of deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) students who received See the Sound Visual Phonics (SSVP) as an intervention alongside phonics instruction programs indicated an improvement in grapheme-phoneme correspondence regardless of types of hearing loss. Ye, W., Spychala, H., Harris, R. S., & Oetting, T. L. (2013) report that there is a lack of research investigating the explicit instruction of phonic skills to DHH students and its subsequent impact on reading achievement. This study will provide additional data to add to the growing research on the use of SSVP to improve grapheme-phoneme correspondence.
