dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this investigation was to explore whether or not environment affected how mothers of children with hearing loss respond to their child. Specifically, the researchers analyzed extant data from two studies (Lund 2014 and Lund & Schuele 2016) for four behaviors: unrelated responses, directing responses, ambiguous responses, and nonobligatory responses. Each video was coded according to a pre-written manual (Lund, unpublished) and codes were averaged out of the total maternal utterances found. After the videos were coded, a univariate analysis of variance was conducted and of the four criterion that were investigated, three were found to be significant between the two populations. The main effect of directing responses was not significant. The main effect of unrelated responses was significant, higher for mealtime. The main effect of ambiguous and nonobligatory responses was significant, higher for playtime. We also ran a post- hoc analysis to determine if maternal Mean Length of Utterance was significant (it was, higher for playtime). The implication for these findings is that there are missed opportunities for intervention during both playtime and mealtime, which is an oversight of the ultimate goal of generalizing behaviors across conditions so that intervention is maximally effective. It is important to consider these implications in further discovery so as to better use intervention time during a child?s normal routine.
