The school playground as a meeting place for hard of hearing children

Abstract [en]

The schoolyard is the main social arena for children attending classes for hard of hearing pupils, to meet and mix with other children. Their social interplay with other children is rather restricted during spare time. For the hard of hearing children, included in this study, the surrounding school environment has shifted from one being dominated by spoken language to one being dominated by the use of sign language. Observations by video camera of the children playing during breaks showed that the hearing and the hard of hearing children used the schoolyard in an unequal way. The hard of hearing children were playing in the periphery of the schoolyard and the hearing children in the central interaction areas. In the special school the hard of hearing children were playing in the central interaction areas and often with deaf schoolmates. This may be interpreted as while staying in the integrated environment the hard of hearing boys and girls were socially excluded and in the segregated environment they were socially included.
