Stress Among Children Who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing and Their Families

Educating Deaf Learners

Stress among either parents or children is not a direct outcome of child deafness but rather stems from differences in the context, child experiences, parent and child characteristics, coping resources, and school and community supports. Childhood hearing loss can make some of the common daily demands more challenging or might establish a completely new set of demands. This chapter reviews the everyday stressors in various domains encountered by children who are deaf and hard of hearing, and their parents. Models of child and adolescent psychopathology have recognized the potential importance of stressors in the etiology and maintenance of mental health symptoms and well-being. A more comprehensive understanding of parental stressors can have a positive impact on children who are deaf or hard of hearing by empowering parents to develop competence and involvement in their child’s education and development. To provide family-centered care to families of children with hearing loss, professionals must identify and understand these stressors.
