Deaf Children and Their FamiliesBook - 1995
This is the republication of a study originally entitled The Deaf Child and his Family (1976), which was a landmark in the study of early deafness. Dr. Gregory's work, based on interviews with 122 mothers of deaf children under the age of six years, parallels that already done with hearing children and investigates with the same methodology the ways in which deaf children develop, change and are changed by their home and their wider environment. The book describes the everyday life of young deaf children and their families, looks at the deaf child's activities and daily routine and considers the support and advice given to the parents during the child's early years.
