Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, v5 n2 p127-39 Spr 2000
Both deaf and hearing mothers (N=23) were observed in videotaped face-to-face interactions with their infants (also either deaf or hearing) and maternal touching behavior was coded for intensity, location, and type. Deaf mothers were especially responsive to tactile needs of their deaf infants. However, hearing mothers of deaf infants also incorporated more active forms of touch in interactions.
