This booklet is from a paper which was presented at the American Speech and Hearing Association in December 1949. It is an excellent explanation of the new concept of speech reading. The advantages of teaching speech reading over the former methods of teaching lip reading are very comprehensively and lucidly demonstrated. The method has been adopted by most speech and hearing centers, especially by those in the Armed Forces. The philosophy of speech reading and treatment of the hard of hearing patient as a whole is brilliantly explained. Moving picture films, which have been prepared for the specific purpose of instruction in speech reading, are carefully described, and illustrations from excerpts are presented. The discussion here is extremely worth while and well presented.
