Support for Deaf People in Understanding Messages by Means of SignWriting
Article discusses how to facilitate communication opportunities for people with damaged auditory system. Focusing on people who use sign language as their first language, the authoress postulates they should master the Polish language at least in writing to be able to function independently in society. The research discussed here is aimed at verifying the effectiveness of support provided by means of SignWriting in understanding texts written in the Polish language system. A quasi-experimental method was applied in two groups of deaf people (the experimental and control groups), while descriptive statistics and non-parametric statistical tests were used to verify the effects. As a serious deficit of the ability to use the Polish language phonetic system in deaf people has been observed, every effort should be made to make it easier for them to acquire and use the national language. SignWriting may turn out to be a good alternative to traditional methods or an auxiliary means of teaching the Polish language to deaf people.
Key words: Polish Sign Language, SignWriting, development support, deaf people, rehabilitation education
