Self-Esteem of Hearing-Impaired Adolescents: Effects of Labelling.
Brooks, Harvey C.; Ellis, Godfrey J.
Youth and Society, v14 n1 p59-80 Sep 1982
Research indicated that hearing-impaired subjects' perceptions of others' evaluations of them were more positive for the hard-of-hearing than for the deaf and suggested that observed higher self-esteem of the hard-of-hearing resulted indirectly from these differential perceptions rather than directly from the labels "deaf" and "hard-of-hearing."
