Learning to read and write is extremely difficult for deaf children because these two activities are based on verbal language. The hearing impairment prevents deaf children from being exposed to oral language, so that they are unable to acquire the verbal language through a natural process like hearing peers. Moreover, the educational intervention they are exposed to, seems to not help the development of global comprehension ability. Considering that deaf children have specific needs and that they are visual learners, we have developed an innovative Internet tool which should improve their reading comprehension skills.

Abstract

Learning to read and write is extremely difficult for deaf children because these two activities are based on verbal language. The hearing impairment prevents deaf children from being exposed to oral language, so that they are unable to acquire the verbal language through a natural process like hearing peers. Moreover, the educational intervention they are exposed to, seems to not help the development of global comprehension ability. Considering that deaf children have specific needs and that they are visual learners, we have developed an innovative Internet tool which should improve their reading comprehension skills.
