Abstract


Students with hearing impairment have difficulty understanding abstract words, so many students with hearing impairment have difficulty understanding the text they read. Therefore, an effort is needed to improve their reading comprehension skills through visual learning media, namely comic media. This study aimed to determine an increase in the reading comprehension ability of students with hearing impairment after using webtoon comic. The method used is an experimental method with a one group pre-test-post-test design. The data collection technique used a test by distributing a google form containing ten questions related to the story read. The sample consists of 5 students with hearing impairment. Based on the results of research, the use of webtoon comic media can improve reading comprehension skills, this can be seen from the increase in scores obtained by each student. The increase occurred because students with hearing impairment were helped to understand the sequence of stories through the webtoon comic they read. So it can be concluded that the webtoon comic media can improve the reading comprehension ability of students with hearing impairment.
