resonance problem in hearing loss

by Duygu Büyükköse

I have been working with a boy who has a hearing impairment (10 years old) and he is a CI user. He got education with an auditory-oral approach. He has a problem with only /r/ sound (it's tap/flap for Turkish) however his speech is still unintelligible. He has resonance problem. I'm not sure which type is. Hypernasality, or cul-de-sac? Do you have any suggestion about diagnosing the type of nasality? Also, any suggestion about therapy method/approcah technique? Thank you.
