Learning of written language. A study focused on a group of deaf and hard-of-hearing students in Haiti

Apprentissage de l’écrit en Haïti. Surdité et sourds ayant l’autisme comme trouble associé

Abstract

The deaf and hard-of-hearing sometimes experience constraints that differ from those of hearing people; plus, when this physiological state (deafness) coincides with other disorders, learning to write becomes exceptionally difficult.

The main interest of this chapter includes the strategies that hard-of-hearing and deaf (non-hearing) children devise to learn to write and how they use writing in the development of knowledge in the Haitian context. It is a matter of understanding how these children manage to learn to read and write, and of analyzing impacts of judgments on their school performances. As deafness, seen in particular from the angle of sensorimotor disorder, is described as phenomenon that impose social specific limitations on children, this chapter is to study the impacts of pedagogical practices on the learning process of written language. The deafness as a characteristic of a community of people that are culturally and linguistically different is notably studied.

Deafness is the main topic here. But, since cases of deaf people with symp- toms similar to autism have been identified in our field of investigation, some clarifications may be necessary. Establishing that congenital deafness is a normal phenomenon, and that deaf people can encounter difficulties like any other individual, autism will thus be studied as a disorder that manifests itself in some of these sampled students. We also must clarify the terms: deaf/cophotic, hard-of-hearing, hearing impaired, and deaf-mute. To avoid confusion and to be careful of the usage of these terms, some of which may be used pejoratively, some cautions on the phenomenon of deafness are necessary.
