Parental Involvement: Deaf versus Hearing Children.
Powers, Gerald W.
A study of 13 hearing parents of children with deafness and 28 parents of children without disabilities (ages 5-12) was conducted to determine if there was a difference in parent involvement in their child's education. Parents were asked to complete a 23-question survey about their involvement in their child's education over the past year. No intergroup differences in parent involvement were demonstrated. The parents of children with deafness observed their children somewhat more in the classroom than did the parents of children without disabilities. The parents of children without disabilities volunteered in their children's classroom somewhat more than parents of children with deafness. Suggestions are offered for increasing parental involvement. (Author/CR)
