Griffin, Christine – Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, 2013
Parents have a lot to consider in a very short period of time following identification of a hearing loss. Loving their child is simply not sufficient. Questions must be asked and answered by parents.

Miller, Margery; Funayama, E. Sumie – Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, 2008
The view that a deaf child with autism is just that--a deaf child first (because of the critical importance of communication) and an autistic child second--is the more prevalent today, especially in larger educational programs.
