    Abstract

    Research carried out during the last 50 years has shown that the majority of schooled deafpeople do not reach the minimal or functional level for written communication. In this article, a review of the investigation attempting to establish the causes and possible solutions for improving reading in deaf children is presented. In particular, we analyze the linguistic components and the signed, phonological and dactylic codes. Finally, we propose a reading model for deaf people; this model is similar to the model proposed for individuals with phonological dyslexia. The following strategies for improving their phonological components are emphasized: dactylology, lip reading, cochlear implants, cued-speech, sign language and kinesthetic stimulation.
