Abstract [en]

Previous survey studies for hearing impaired students have not used complete bilingual techniques. The present approach is the first using interactive survey methods with the possibility to answer in sign language. Our research group ICU has addressed HH/deaf adolescents in a number of psychosocial studies using different types of approaches. In upper secondary school for HH/deaf students we made a bilingual study (Swedish and Swedish sign language - SSL) in multiple methods in 2007/2008. In this study we did use methodologically new instruments and students were taking part in the study in their first language. The study, financed by Allmänna Arvsfonden, developed research methods increasing student’s participation. A necessary component is language as well as cultural competence. Our interviewers were themselves deaf/HH. The planning process was conducted with representatives in special interest organisations. Study methods were qualitative interviews (n=25), focus groups (PI-interviews, N=209) and a web-based survey (N=95). The qualitative methods did use visualised creative tecniques. The web-based survey used the instrument”Query & Report”. Technical support was given by Omnitor, a Swedish company with language and cultural competence. We will continue using interactive multi-lingual survey technique (SSL, Braille, written and spoken Swedish) to study psychosocial risks and to make interventions.
