The Changing American Family & Ethnically Diverse Children with Hearing Loss and Multiple Needs
Rhoades, Ellen A.; Price, Fiona; Perigoe, Christina Barris
Volta Review, v104 n4 p285-305 2004
The purposes of this paper are to examine the degree of ethnic diversity that exists among children with hearing loss; to review how this affects implementation of auditory-based intervention for children with many needs; and to suggest ways that auditory-based therapists can respect and respond to diversity for the improvement of services to minority groups. While the information presented reflects American data, similar trends in other developed countries, in particular those with high immigration levels from developing countries, suggest that they face similar issues.
