Deaf and Hearing Parents' Interactions with Eldest Hearing Children.
Jones, Elaine G.; Dumas, Robert E.
American Annals of the Deaf, v141 n4 p278-83 Oct 1996
This study compared interactions in 18 families headed by either deaf or hearing parents with an eldest hearing child (aged 7 to 11). Transcripts of parent/child dyadic interactions during a vacation planning activity were analyzed. There were no significant differences between children in the two groups, though deaf parents demonstrated less self-assertive communication than hearing parents. (DB)
