Pedophilia and Deafness.
Vernon, McCay; Rich, Steve
American Annals of the Deaf, v142 n4 p300-11 Oct 1997
Data from 22 cases of individuals with deafness suffering from pedophilia indicate a number of factors that distinguish them from hearing pedophiles. Differences include a prevalence of Primitive Personality Disorder, a high rate of brain damage, illiteracy, poorer communication skills, and psychiatric illnesses. Legal issues, prevention, and punishment are addressed. (Author/CR)
