My name is Rebeca Liaschi Floro Silva and my abstract entitled:
*Analysis of "virtual" or real inclusion of students with hearing loss
during the COVID-19 pandemic.*
To contain the contagion of COVID - 19, schools' closure sent more than
half a billion students to the home. Classes that were presential today are
being mediated remotely, using different technologies. It can be
challenging for students, for children with hearing loss, since hearing,
when impaired, can significantly impair cognitive development, literacy,
and mainly oral language. From the inclusive perspective of students with
hearing loss, verifying and reducing the risks of adverse impacts with the
pandemic's new reality is necessary. Objective: Investigate the knowledge
and use of accessibility tools and strategies in the virtual or
conventional classroom by students with hearing impairment. Methodology:
This is a cross-sectional, observational, and descriptive study.
Thirty-four parents of participants who use electronic devices, aged
between 2 and 18 years, participated. The collection was carried out by
telephone. Participants answered the authors' questionnaire, consisting of
11 questions about using electronic devices and the use of accessibility
tools and strategies in the virtual or conventional classroom during the
pandemic. The data were analyzed in a descriptive and inferential manner.
Results: 22.5% of virtual school classes took place in online courses
format, recorded by computer or cell phone, the others were divided into
other formats. 52.5% can monitor virtual activities with the help of family
members. 25% of children or adolescents were using the FM System during the
face-to-face class before the pandemic. 27.5% report that the school
provided some specific support for distance activities. 47.5% would not
like to receive guidance on strategies for improving access to classes or
developing auditory and oral language skills via call center, and 27.5% and
20% would like advice by cell phone and computer, respectively. The study
allowed to know the reality of access to distance education for students
with hearing impairment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
