Abstract [en]

Habilitation of children with hearing impairment is becoming an integral part of an implementation of new reforms toward inclusion in education in Republic of Moldova, which reminds as  emerging and one of the poorest countries in Europe.  Ongoing research is reporting that access to mainstream education for children with disabilities is full of contradictions. The interest to this study was caused by the ongoing reforming of special education and the adaptation of democratic values in education from the habilitation conceptual perspective. The families involved in this research were ‘low incomefull families’, had a school age children with hearing impairment, lived in urban environment of the big city and experienced shortage services for their children. Study questions were built on the assumption that a family with a hearing impaired child in the situationof extremely limited opportunities to get professional assistance to their child and low family income, will seek to fill these ‘gaps’, replacing/substituting them through the development of particular habilitation resources in their families. This study had an integrative qualitative approach, through which various data were collected. Research outcomes emerged two themes: ‘social-economic assistance: dignity in poverty’ and ‘building multimodal family-competence’ within a wide spectrum of meanings in them. Both of the themes conceptualized ‘habilitation resources’ in families with hearing impaired children and brought understanding of meanings of such resources from the substitution and complementation of shortage appropriate services perspectives. In this way the concept of‘habilitation resources’ in these families’ needs its further investigation and conceptualization.
