La surdité et les sourds au Bénin : la problématique du handicap et l'exemple du Centre d'Accueil et d'Intégration des Sourds de Louho (Porto-Novo) comme facteur de changement des représentations sociales

Abstract : This work deals with social representations about deafness and deaf people in Benin. We will see how a particular culture is able to create these representations thanks to its traditional believes and its ideas. We'll take the example of a West Africa country: Benin. After a theoric part dealing with social representations in a general way, we will present the main characteristics of this country. Then, we will study deafness' representations we have found and we will try to explain it. To conclude, we will see how and why the school for deaf children of Louho (Porto-Novo) is likely to make these representations change.
