A pilot study tested techniques for teaching speech to deaf children in Kenya. Researchers trained teachers and parents at four schools for deaf and hard of hearing students. They learned to encourage children to notice environmental sounds or use their voice. Only children with a certain level of hearing were included. Teachers already used Kenya Sign Language, but started to speak while signing. 

[The article does not mention that studies in the United States found that signing and speaking together often results in poor signing. This can cause students to misunderstand more of what the teacher says.]
