ABSTRACT
The functional diversity in Extremadura is researched by comparing the problem in the media with the norma-tive activity. It also delves into its relationship with in-formation units. The objective is to discover whether the official regulations accompany the social problems reflected in the media. To do this, we investigated the news about functional diversity published in the DOE (Official Gazette of Extremadura), as a normative me-dium, and in the HOY newspaper of Extremadura, as a global communication medium, to see their differences regarding geographical area, terminology and typol-ogy, topics, temporal evolution, and relationship with the information units;and, finally, we delve into this last aspect. The research was carried out during 2020, co-inciding with the crucial period of the health pandemic caused by COVID19, which was a handicap for all citi-zens and, especially, for people with disabilities. Among the general results, a volume of news about functional diversity is obtained, very much in favour of HOY (1344 news) to the detriment of the DOE (29 news). A slight opening towards the outside is also ob-tained, a slight use of the term "functional diversity " and a greater thematic diversity in the HOY newspaper. As for the information units, there is a very low percentage of news (40, all in the HOY, 2.91%), the most frequently mentioned information units are libraries (70%) and the most recurrent theme is "Employment " (42.5%). It con-cludes with a lack of accompaniment on disability be-tween the political regulations and the social problems reflected in the media. It also concludes with the need for greater involvement and visibility in the media of the role played by information units in relation to helping the most vulnerable groups.
