Mom's sensitivity helps language development in children with hearing loss
Mom's sensitivity helps language development in children with hearing loss: Mar. 8, 2013 — University of Miami (UM) Psychologist Alexandra L. Quittner leads one of the largest, most nationally representative studies of the effects of parenting on very young, deaf children who have received cochlear implants. The findings indicate that mothers who are most sensitive in their interactions with their children receiving cochlear implants have kids that develop language faster, almost "catching up" to their hearing peers.
