Question: Will listening skills be improved if children are trained to respond to speech speeded up?
Answer: “No evidence was observed which would indicate that a gain in listening skills will result when a faster rate of presentation is used as compared to a normal speaking rate of presentation.” M.A. Ihnat. 1975. P. 279.
Comment: I just thought that such an idea should be tested. RayS.
