Summary

To design and develop an innovative educational setting for deaf children from 0 to 5 years, from a linguistic-visual perspective.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Argentinean deaf community is in a critical situation due to its deficient education and the social prejudices and indifference of society. 80% of deaf adults are illiterate, deaf children don't have deaf adults as role models, and accessibility to society is limited. This project aims to solve these problems by creating accessible linguistic, physical, and cultural environments for deaf children. Beneficiaries: Deaf children under 5 and their families, and deaf and hearing teachers.

How will this project solve this problem?

Project activities include interviews with parents and teachers, design of curriculum and educational materials, training of deaf and hearing adults, and the creation of accessible education for small deaf children

Potential Long Term Impact

This project aims to improve the general development of deaf children through Sign Language and Spanish, their psychological development, and the communication between deaf children and their hearing parents and teachers.
