The republication of this landmark in the study of early deafness coincides with the publication of the longitudinal follow-up to this study.
This is the republication of a study originally entitled The Deaf Child and his Family which was a landmark in the study of early deafness. Dr Gregoryâs work describes the everyday life of young deaf children and their families. This republication, including the addition of a new introduction, coincides with the publication of Dr Gregoryâs follow-up longitudinal study of the same cohort of families in Deaf Young People and their Families.
Based on interviews with 122 mothers of young deaf children, this landmark study investigates the ways in which the children develop, change and are changed by their home and environment. Its reissue coincides with the publication of the author's follow-up longitudinal study of the same families.
