Reading Comprehension of Junior High School Students With Hearing Impairment in the Post Pandemic Classes


Reading is an essential life skill and one of the focal concerns of the academic system particularly among the learners. However, Junior High School (JHS) with hearing impairment in the post pandemic classes are facing challenges in reading comprehension. Their hearing impairment is pointed out to be the reason for their difficulty in comprehending what they are reading. In this regard, this study identified S.Y. 2022-2023 JHS students with hearing impairment as the respondents. It sought to determine the reading comprehension level, hearing impairment level, and reading comprehension level according to the level of hearing impairment. This study used the descriptive survey design. The respondents of this study were JHS students with hearing impairment. Universal sampling or total enumeration of the respondents was used. An adapted reading comprehension test was used to determine the reading comprehension. The students’ hearing impairment levels were determined based on the profile of the students. Frequency count, percentage, and weighted mean were the statistical tools used to answer problems 1, 2, and 3. The results reveal that the overall level reading comprehension is literal level, hearing impairment is profound, and that the reading comprehension is not dictated by the hearing impairment level. In this regard, emphasis on the use of different post pandemic reading strategies should be reemphasized and considered by the teachers in order to develop and improve the reading comprehension of the JHS students with hearing impairment in the post pandemic classes.
