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.
