Meadow-Orlans, Kathryn P.
Journal of Early Intervention, v18 n1 p91-102 Win 1994
Data from 20 mothers and 16 fathers of infants with early-diagnosed hearing impairments (DI) were compared to parents of hearing infants (HI). Parenting stress of DI parents was no greater than that of HI parents. Social support was associated with lower levels of parenting stress for DI mothers and fathers but not for HI parents.
