As a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH), I utilize the Speech Banana Form to help further develop student Self-Advocacy Skills in relation to their Hearing Loss and/or Deafness. I use this form to help teach the student how to: 1. Read their current Audiogram and/or Auditory Brain Response (ABR) Report, 2. How to create a Speech Banana and 3. How to verbally explain their hearing loss in visual form to others who do not know Hearing Loss Terminology. My students in High School learn how to make these, independently from continual practice and how to explain them to assist them in advocating for their personal, learning and behavioral needs in the home, school and work environments. With continual practice, the students are then able to read and make a Speech Banana from their current audiogram and/or ABR and explain them on their own, especially if changes have occurred from their most current Audiologist Appointment! I also use these for in-services to help inform Elementary and Middle School Teachers of a student's hearing loss! They love being able to visually understand what their student(s) can and cannot hear; further assisting them in better serving our DHH students. The individual will NEED to make a Key at the bottom of the Speech Banana, identifying: X (in blue) for the Left Ear, O (in red) for Right Ear, Yellow Box with lines through it for Within Normal Limits (WNL), Pink or Green Box with lines opposite of WNL box to indicate Hearing Loss Range and < (in Dark Green) for Bone Conduction.
