Abstract:


An interview with parents of children with hearing impairment was carried out in the initial study since the coordinated effort of parents and children is essential in the education of children. Considering that this interview was appropriate for collecting qualitative-oriented data, it has been chosen as the knowledge elicitation method. In most families who have a hearing impaired child, mothers play a vital role regarding communication and family cohesion. In addition usually children spend more time with their mothers and they have a closer relationship with them; as a result particularly mothers are selected as respondents of this interview. The goal of the interview is to to ask parents about the Islamic education of their hearing impaired children. Four parents have been interviewed in depth. As a results, there are four concerns expressed by the mothers which are lack of family support in education, the Malay culture with regard to disabled children, dissatisfaction toward schools and lack of technology support in schools.
