Description

The purpose of this research was to learn about the qualitative research process and the selective language skills of an individual with hearing loss. After IRB approval, two audio-taped interviews were conducted, one with the individual and another with her mother. With this data, I was able to look at factors that affected the individual’s language skills such as family involvement, self- esteem/advocacy, and therapy received. Codes and subcodes were used to organize the information obtained in the interview and from these, four main patterns were extracted. These patterns and the data analysis allowed for an assertion to be made regarding the individual’s experience growing up with hearing loss.
