iPad for 84 students with hearing Impairment,Spain

by Foundation Dales la Palabra

Summary

The consequences that suffer children with hearing disabilities at communicative level are very serious because the hearing disability prevents them from interacting with their classmates with normality, leading to situations of social and educational exclusion. From a very early age we work the integration of deaf children with hearing children, relying on an inclusive education. Only an outstanding inclusive education can guarantee their future social and professional integration.

Challenge

In the lessons, the noises, the distance between the students and the teacher, the simultaneous conversations between classmates, prevent the information from arrive with sufficient clarity to the hearing impaired students understand properly. To ensure, for 84 hearing impaired students, the access to the information in a situation of equality, the school is committed to use iPads as a technological tool. The iPads gives them access to all the information in a multisensory way.

Solution

The project will solve the lack of access to the information of the lessons when the hearing is the only input. It allows us to offer quality education and equal opportunities by eliminating some of the accessibility barriers. Providing iPads to each deaf student we will manage to give the educational information they have to learn through other channels, compensating their lack of hearing. The rationale behind this is "what does not reach them by hearing, gets to them by sight".

Long-Term Impact

The project has effects in the short and long-run, it is committed to eliminate the communication barriers for the children in school and in the long run it will help them, as adults, to integrate as members with full rights and abilities in society. This project will help to generate on all the students an even more positive image of their deaf peers.
