You and Your Deaf Child is a guide for parents of deaf or hard of


hearing children that 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


and also at The Family Center of Western New York, both in Buffalo, NY.
