A Longitudinal Study of the Effects of Deafness on the Early Mother-Child Relationship.
Lederberg, Amy R.; And Others
Thirty-three deaf and 33 hearing children were videotaped playing with their hearing mothers at 22 months and 3 years of age. The deaf and hearing dyads differed at 22 months only on communicative competence. In addition, interactions in deaf dyads were mother dominated and less harmonious than in hearing dyads. At 3 years, the deaf children also showed less social initiative, social compliance, enjoyment, creativity, and on-task behavior and more misbehavior than hearing children. (Author/DB)
