The study confirm the notation that an oral program in preschool provides an opportunity for the deaf to communicate by speaking, and that nonverbal communication is the first system which all children use before verbal communication is developed. Five deaf children were taught by using an oral program and the teacher used verbal and nonverbal communication in the classroom. Results were that the deaf could speak and could use nonverbal communication at the same time. They could acquire nonverbal before verbal communication. The pattern of vocabulary learning was similar to normal children.
