ABSTRACT

[Purpose] The purpose of this study is to investigate the awareness and difficulties in literacy guidance for parents raising children with hearing impairments during the COVID-19 pandemic and to explore methods for Home-Based learning through parents when home learning occurs due to infectious diseases. [Method] We conducted interviews with parents of children with hearing impairments who experienced school closures and home learning due to COVID-19, examined their awareness and difficulties in literacy guidance, and developed an intervention program based on parents' needs. We then examined the effectiveness of this program through pre- and post-tests over 24 sessions with 13 children with hearing impairments and their 13 parents. [Results] First, parents' awareness of literacy duidance for children with hearing impairments was found to be high in terms of visiting specialized institutions for assessment and intervention. However, while parents recognized the need for literacy interventions, they did not accurately know their child's literacy level and had a low rate of Home-Based guidance. Second, Home-Based learning through parents was found to have a positive impact on vocabulary and literacy improvement. [Conclusion] The results suggest that Home-Based learning through parents can have a positive impact on the literacy improvement of children with hearing impairments. It also implies the need for systematic education and guidance on literacy guidance for teachers, parents, and professionals, as well as support considering the characteristics of the disability.
