Research

Califone encourages the use of published peer-reviewed research supporting individual, small group and classroom-wide sound amplification. These references are intended only as beginning reference points and n expanded list of journals and original source materials can be found from some of these association web sites.

In order to organize the following research so it might be more readily accessible to certain products, we have grouped them by the following categories.

Classroom Wide Audio Amplification

The leading instructional tool to increase fluency is for students to hear fluent reading daily. Oral reading can, indeed, foster comprehension.

Delaware Valley Regional High School (DVRHS) was unable to provide adequate services for its students with hearing impairments. As a result, the New Jersey school was spending up to $40,000 a year in outplacement costs to send these students to other districts in the state.
