    Abstract

    My diploma thesis focuses on the social integration of a hard-of-hearing Roma pupil within three groups of other pupils, on the second level of a special needs programme, in the 3rd year of elementary school with a lower educational standard and also in handicraft classes. In the theoretical part the Roma people, their ethnic origin, history and development are presented. Moreover, a group of children with special needs is presented and a group of the deaf and hearing- impaired is analysed. In addition the thesis defines what communication and communication among the deaf are, discusses the social development of a child with the emphasis on a deaf or hard-of-hearing child. Furthermore the concept of inclusion and integration is analysed in detail with a focus on the advantages and disadvantages of the integration of a deaf or hard-of-hearing child among the hearing peers. In the empirical part an analysis of an actual case of the social integration of a hard-of-hearing pupil and her social acceptance in different classes is presented. Through the interviews with the class teacher, the teacher in the third year of elementary school with a lower educational standard, the extra-curricular activities teacher and also with the documantation of a pupil, the results of the questionnaire for her schoolfriends and peers in other two groups as well as the sociogram the social integration of a hearing-impared Roma pupil is established. The findings of the empirical part show that the hearing-impaired Roma girl is well socially integrated only in the 3rd year of elementary school with a lower educational standard whereas other pupils in other groups do not accept her which results in her low social status. The main reason for the girl's low integration is, according to her teachers, unsuccessful communication between the hard-of-hearing girl and her peers. The teachers believe that inclusion is not suitable for every deaf or hard-of-hearing pupil. The key factor for a successful integration is well-prepared and trained teachers and adaptability of a learning process to a deaf or hearing-impaired pupil.
