Interventions on children with prelingual hearing loss through cochlear implants promotes the capability of sound stimuli detection and the creation of learning conditions of receptive verbal repertories. The use of the equivalence relations paradigm have been considered an efficient approach on the study and the establishment of symbolic repertories. Nevertheless, the conditions to establish expressive repertories, mainly those related to speech intelligibility, require more investigation. In view of the better expressive performances of this population on word reading than picture naming tasks, the present research proposal aim to assess the effects of programmed teaching of reading and writing through the teaching program Learning to Read and Write in Small Steps® on the speech intelligibility of children with prelingual hearing loss and cochlear implant recipients. Therefore, it will be used a single subject design with multiple baseline tests of spoken tasks after each group of three trained words and after each trained Unit. With the replication and extension of data about the control transference of expressive responses between written words to pictures, the present study may create a number of possibilities in the implementation of fast and low-cost procedures to be applied within the rehabilitation process both in literacy and speech intelligibility enhancement of the population.
