Self-Esteem, Family Climate, and Communication Patterns in Relation to Deafness.
Desselle, Debra D.
American Annals of the Deaf, v139 n3 p322-28 Jul 1994
This study of 53 deaf adolescents at a residential school and their parents found that parents who used total communication had children whose self-esteem scores were higher than those of children whose parents used an oral-only method of communication. A positive relationship was also found between student self-esteem and reading level. (Author/JDD)
