Analysis of the responses of 42 hearing mothers of elementary school age, multihandicapped, deaf children to a questionnaire regarding their attitudes toward sign language found that positive attitudes were associated with high socioeconomic status, more realistic perceptions of the child's condition, a stronger sense of coherence, and families that were more generally expressive and active.
