Summary

To examine the effects of hearing impairment on the family, questionnaires were completed by 358 mothers and 184 fathers of hearing impaired children enrolled in special education. Questionnaires measured three areas: (1) family stress; (2) communication with the hearing-impaired child; and (3) relationships with professionals and others outside the family. Mean scores of mothers and fathers did not differ significantly on stress factors, although fathers tended to express lower levels. Mothers expressed more confidence in their abilities to communicate with the hearing impaired child. Sex of the child did not significantly affect parents' scores, although child's birth order and age appeared to have substantial effects. Mothers of rubella children had more negative scores than mothers of children with deafness related to other items. Parents using speech plus sign language with their children had less positive scores on all three scales. Tables present the statistical outcomes of the project. (CL)
