The Effects of Symbolic Play on Language Development in Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing

  • Objectives:

  • Provide an introduction of the important role that play has on the development of language.

  • Provide examples of how the development of play and language differ between children with a hearing impairment and their normal hearing peers.

  • Describe the impact that caregivers have on their child’s development.

Age of Intended Audience: 18 and up

Abstract: This product was designed to inform professionals and families about the effects of symbolic play . Through understanding, caregivers and professionals alike can provide an appropriate model for both language and play by knowing the natural order of development.


Between hearing children and those with a hearing loss l.jpg

The relationship between symbolic play and language development is similar:

13 mos. = play is related to receptive language, not so much expressive.

20 mos. = the amount of expressive language is equal to play.

2 ½ yrs. = language skills lead the development of play.

Between hearing children and those with a hearing loss…


Still lagging l.jpg

Still lagging!

  • Deaf (D) children still lag in their comprehension and expression of language.

  • They lack full access to communicative information.

  • Degree of loss affects awareness of spoken communication forms.


What is the big deal about play l.jpg

What is the big deal about play?

  • The communication that occurs in play requires children to know what to communicate, how to communicate, and to understand other’s communication.


Symbolic vs non symbolic l.jpg

Symbolic vs. Non-Symbolic?

  • Non-symbolic play was found to have no bearing on later communication abilities.

  • Symbolic play is related to various aspects of early language development in children that are D/HOH.

Environmental Factors

  • Dyad Hearing Status

    • Deaf children of deaf mothers have similar language abilities as hearing children of hearing mothers.

    • Hearing mothers of deaf children lack the responsiveness conducive of child language.


Ideas to keep in mind l.jpg

Ideas to Keep in Mind

  • Provide structured play scenarios during early development.

  • Guide and encourage parents to use pretend play as a context for interaction with their child.

  • Encourage parents to refer to events that occurred in the past.
