Mes mains prennent la parole : élaboration d'un livret d'information et de sensibilisation au Makaton à destination des parents d'enfants trachéotomisés de moins de 6 ans

Abstract : Pediatric tracheostomy is achieved in different cases of children's diseases. With the young child, this surgical technique is difficult and dangerous. It requires a close medical follow-up. The long-term hospitalization and the primary child's pathology have an impact on his/her whole development. Communication, particularly, is affected by vocal disturbances. The young tracheostomized patient cannot communicate by writing initially (after surgery). Therefore, he/she is deprieved of means of communication and the interactions with people are dramatically changed. The Makaton program proposes using signs and pictograms to compensate communication troubles. This method has many benefits for tracheostomized children. After analyzing literature, we noticed the lack of written information about Makaton with tracheostomized children, and thus, we wondered about the elaboration of a written document for families. A preliminary survey of healthcare professionals and parents confirmed the relevance of our project. At the hospital, parents need more information about alternative means of communication. A written document would complete existing oral information and anticipate speech therapy reeducation. To satisfy this need, we created an informative and preventive booklet, for parents, to begin Makaton with their tracheostomized child. The quality and the utility of the booklet has been approved thanks to a satisfaction survey.
