Who was Daniel Ling?

Daniel Ling, OC was a foremost authority on the teaching of speech to deaf children. His speech teaching methods are widely used throughout the world.

From 1973 to 1984, he was a Professor, Graduate Studies in Aural Habilitation at McGill University. From 1984 to 1991, he was Dean of the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Western Ontario.

In 1999, he was made an Officer of the Order of Canada. He was granted Canadian armorial bearings in 2001.

Today, cochlear implants are allowing deaf children to develop spoken language at a level unseen at any time before. As part of a daily monitoring regimen, the Ling Six is used to assure proper implant performance. The Ling Six consists of the sounds "oo", "ee", "ah", "m", "s", and "sh". If the child can hear each one accurately, as evidenced by echoing each sound delivered behind his/her back, the implant is considered working properly.
