Élaboration et pré-validation d'une Échelle de la COMmunication de l'Adulte Sourd : l'ECOMAS

Abstract : There is no clinical tool available for the speech therapists which evaluate accurately the communication skills and difficulties of the deaf adult. The aim of this study was to elaborate then pre-validate the COMmunication scale for hearing impaired Adult: the ECOMAS. The validation was conducted with 134 patients divided into three groups: 39 deaf adults candidates for the cochlear implantation, 53 adults implanted for less than one year and 42 adults implanted for more than one year. The validation’s work demonstrated a good internal coherence and external validity of the scale. The intra-rater reliability was only confirmed between speech therapists of the referral centre. Finally, ECOMAS is sensitive to the changes. More detailed instructions for use and a one-day training session could improve the reproducibility between all the speech therapists. Finally, the sensitivity in the changes could be evaluated over a longer period.
