Deaf Young People and their Families

Developing Understanding

by Susan Gregory, Juliet Bishop,

This is a longitudinal follow up to the study reported in The Deaf Child and his Family, now re-published as Deaf Children and their Families. Some 18 years on, 75% of the original families have been traced and this new volume provides an account of the subsequent interviews with both the parents and the deaf young people themselves. Participants reflect not only on the consequences of deafness within their own lives, but on the changing context for deaf people. It includes a comparison of the views of parents with those of their sons and daughters and an examination of factors in early life which may relate to later development. In its provision of a unique insight into the deaf young person's perspective on life, it will be a valuable resource for all those concerned with deafness and special education, including families, deaf people, professionals and academics.
