PAIVA, Gisele Oliveira da Silva  e  MELO, Francisco Ricardo Lins Vieira de. Linguistic Accessibility for Deaf People in Higher Education: Reflections about the Brazilian Sign Language/Portuguese Language Undergraduate Course of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2021, vol.27, e0154.  Epub 22-Mar-2021. ISSN 1980-5470.

This work aimed to know which actions concerning the linguistic accessibility for deaf people have been implemented by the Brazilian Sign Language/Portuguese Language Undergraduate Course (Curso de Letras Libras/ Língua Portuguesa - CLLLP) of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte (Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Norte - UFRN). The construction of this study was based on data elaborated during the Master’s research entitled ‘Deaf Students in Higher Education: reflections on the inclusion in the Brazilian Sign Language/Portuguese Language Undergraduate Course at UFRN’. More specifically, we endeavor to glance at the "linguistic accessibility" category that was built from an interview in Brazilian Sign Language with seven deaf students from the course. To this end, we interweave actions aimed at the linguistic accessibility of the deaf involving the CLLLP course with the speeches of these subjects. In this way, we guide our theoretical discussions considering the historical roots of the Deaf Education, Deaf Studies, Linguistic Policies and Cultural Studies. Finally, we observed the importance of considering the feedback of the deaf about the actions promoted by CLLLP to provide opportunities for the deaf person’s linguistic rights to be implemented in all spaces of the university. And, still, the need for a constant reflection movement to generate institutional strategies that contribute to face the challenges of implementing linguistic accessibility and, therefore, ensure the access and permanence with quality of the Deaf in Higher Education.
