A study and analysis of learning objects (LOs) for deaf education, however, in addition to an educational object, can intervene in the student’s learning to facilitate the construction process in their school environment, and thus result in a positive source in their development. For this to happen, LOs must be well planned and designed to achieve the goal that the deaf student needs, i.e. to build their knowledge and for the teacher to become a mediator in this learning scenario using resources where sign language is present. With this in mind, this book presents an analysis of educational products for the deaf found in master’s dissertations in the Postgraduate Programme in Science and Technology Teaching at the Federal Technological University of ParanĂ¡ – Brazil in the city of Ponta Grossa, from 2010 to 2018. In this time frame, 5 educational products suitable for deaf people were found. Based on the information obtained, this research shows that it is necessary to work differently to provide deaf students with adequate learning opportunities.
