Multisensory Sound Lab Transforms Sound Into Light and Vibrations

The Multisensory Sound Lab was developed in response to a question posed by a science teacher at Gallaudet University's Model Secondary School for the Deaf . . . 

"How do I teach my deaf students what sound is if they cannot hear?"

Multisensory sound lab amplifies sound and transforms sound into vibrationsDeveloped under contract with the U.S. Department of Education, The Multisensory Sound Lab was the answer. The vibrotactile, multisensory sound system not only amplifies sound through loudspeakers, it simultaneously transforms sound into floor vibrations. These vibrations can be felt through the student's body and seen using many visual displays within the Lab. (Click on image for larger view.)

"The Multisensory Sound Lab here at Rochester School for the Deaf  (RSD) continues to provide a stimulating learning experience for our students. As staff, we continue to search for and discover ways to use the Sound Lab to bring sound to life so that sound perception can be related to the environment around a student."

"We also focus on strategies to transfer sound/speech perception to speech sound production. We have had visitors from around the world to RSD and one of the highlights of their visits has been the Sound Lab because it is so very unique and multisensory." -- Jo-Ann M. Koch, Director Speech/Audiology & Communication Program, Rochester School for the Deaf, N.Y.

For speech therapy, the Sound Lab provides motivating reinforcement of vocalization and speech sound production." --Kimberly Fisher, Ph.D., Department of Communication Disorders, University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City
