本研究旨在探討聽覺障礙幼兒五至六歲期間，口語理解能力之成長軌線及其影響因素。研究對象包括30名五歲聽覺障礙幼兒和52名四歲一般幼兒。本研究使用學前兒童色塊測驗（林月仙，2007）和學前兒童語言能力的測驗（張欣戊，1991），以個別施測方式評量研究對象之口語理解能力。從2007年4月至12月每隔三個月測量一次，共蒐集3次縱貫資料，接者使用階層線性模式軟體HLM6.0（Raudenbush, Bryk, & Congdon, 2004）進行資料分析。研究結果如下：
The purpose of this study was to investigate the growth trajectory of auditory comprehension abilities in children with hearing impairment aged between five and six years old and the factors associated with their growth trajectory. The participants in the current study included thirty 5-year-old children with hearing impairment and fifty-two 4-year-old children with typical development. Token Test for Chinese-Speaking Preschoolers (TTCP) and H. W. Chang’s oral comprehension test were used to examine participants’ auditory comprehension abilities. Each participant was examined individually one time per three months between April, 2007 and December, 2007. The collected data was examined using HLM6.0（Raudenbush, Bryk, & Congdon, 2004）.
The results of this study indicated that the estimation of initial status in 5-year-old children with hearing impairment was lower than that in 4-year-old children with typical development on TTCP and H. W. Chang’s oral comprehension test. The growth rate of children with hearing impairment on TTCP was higher than that of children with typical development. Several participants showed unique growth trajectory. However, there was no significant difference between children with hearing impairment and children with typical development on H. W. Chang’s oral comprehension test. Further, the results of this study suggested that the growth trajectory of the comprehension abilities of children with severe hearing impairment was not affected by gender, the use of hearing aids or receiving hearing therapy. This may be due to the small sample size, large individual differences within each group, and the short period of data collection. The findings of this research may provide useful information to educators and researchers.
