Schools in all provinces of the country already have our textbook

In Argentina, many deaf children and adolescents encounter barriers to exercise their right to access literacy. One of those barrieres is the lack of educational materials designed for them. To break down these barriers, Canales’ team designed a textbook for teaching Spanish, which is their second language and the one that allows them to read and write Spanish, the official language in Argentina

“Reading and writing - 3 . Stories of my community”, is a textbook created for and by deaf people, which includes: a book for teachers, one for students, videos in Argentinian Sign Language (LSA) to contextualize each unit, and ICT activities. It is available on our website and was launched at the end of 2021.

We have analyzed the data for this first half of the year and it has already exceeded 500 downloads! Bearing in mind that there are approximately 100 schools for the deaf in Argentina, this is an excellent start. In each of the 24 provinces of our country someone has already shown interest and downloaded this Textbook. According these users, more than 75% of the downloads come from those who work in the educational sector and about 15% are students.

We also found that this educational material has aroused interest in 10 countries. Although the deaf communities of each country have their own sign language, Spanish is the second language of this population in all of them, showing that it is an innovative and replicable project.

We are on the right track to ensure that more deaf children and adolescents become literate. ¡Join us with your donation so that more schools have this multimedia textbook!
