Description

The purpose of this research was to study the selective language skills of individuals with hearing loss and learn about the qualitative research process. I researched background information about hearing loss and speech and language characteristics of individuals who have hearing loss. After receiving IRB approval, I conducted an interview with a mother who has a child with hearing loss. The interview was audio recorded and transcribed verbatim. Using that information, I coded and subcoded the interview. Seven patterns emerged, and after analyzing the patterns, I was able to make an assertion regarding an individual’s experience growing up with hearing loss.
