You and Deaf Child is a guide for parents of deaf or hard of hearing children. The book explores how parents and their children interact. It examines the special impact of having a deaf child in the family.
Eleven chapters focus on such topics as feelings about hearing loss, the importance of communication in the family, and effective behavior management. Many chapters contain practice activities and questions to help parents retain skills taught in the chapter and check their grasp of the material. Four appendices provide references, general resources, and guidelines for evaluating educational programs.
Once parents have worked through You and Your Deaf Child, this friendly guide can be referred to for specific information and advice as different situations arise.
John W. Adams is a psychologist at St. Mary's School for the Deaf in Buffalo, NY.
