Abstract Oral language skills were studied in the communication of hearing children of deaf parents. Six children, who were in their pre‐preschool year, were given a battery of tests. A 45 minute session of each child's speech was tape‐recorded. The children's oral utterances were then compared with what is known about early utterances of children growing up in a hearing environment. The results indicated that the children's cognitive development is far ahead of their language development. This was reflected in the creation of sentences which were syntactically deviant. The children had poor vocabulary development, and compensated by frequent use of the words “thing” and “there”. The present study found a significant correlation between the extra help these children were receiving (from playgroup, kindergartens, relatives and neighbours) and their cognitive development; and also between the extra help and their development of semantic relations. 1983 Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists
