Πισσαδάκη, Αγγελική


The objective of this study is to examine the oral communication-especially of the field of pragmatics, as well as the written skills of students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Moreover, it was attempted to link teachers’ personal traits to the students’ academic profiles. The sample consists of 65 primary special education teachers. Data were collected through a questionnaire, where the primary special education teachers filled out their personal information and the Children’s Communication Checklist for 170 students with SEN. Specifically, 6 student categories were chosen; 32 students with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), 17 students with Intellectual Disability (I.D), 64 with Learning Difficulties (L.D.), 21 with Dyslexia, 23 with Speech and Language Problems and 13 with Special Language Impairment (S.L.I.). As a result of the study, the poorest performance in the oral communication was exhibited by students who are on the autism spectrum, who have S.L.I and Speech and Language Problems. On the other hand, students with ASD exhibited a better performance in the written speech than the ones with S.L.I., I.D., and Speech and Language Problems, who instead faced serious difficulties. The rankings of students with L.D. and Dyslexia, were definitely higher. In conclusion, as far as the teachers’ personal traits are concerned, it was found that those who prepare in time, are adequately informed, have further studies and corporate well with the students’ parents, have students who exhibit better performance in the oral as well as in the written skills.
