This publication provides information on deafness for parents and families. The first few pages talk about how parents might feel about their child’s deafness and how to explain it to friends and relatives. The next section explains how the ear works and different types and levels of hearing loss. The publication then explains things to know when raising very young children, school age children, and children who are becoming adults. The last section lists resources, websites, and organizations for parents in the United Kingdom (UK). Some resources, but not all, might also be helpful for parents in other countries.

This PDF file is mostly accessible for people using screen reading software, but with some difficulty with navigation.
