This paper will arrive at a method of teaching language to a profoundly deaf five year old child. The nature of language will be exposed and the means of acquisition of language for hearing children given. This acquisition will then be compared with the possibilities for acquiring language for the five year old deaf child. Two possibilities exist: a deaf child can acquire language receptively either through lipreading or reading. These will be explored, and the conclusion reached that the use of a combination of both lipreading and reading, with emphasis on lipreading, will be most beneficial to the preschool deaf child.
