(p.36) Chapter 2 For Parents
Music for Children with Hearing Loss

Lyn E. Schraer-Joiner

Oxford University Press

This chapter talks about the consequences of parents' discovery of their child's hearing loss. A survey by Meadow-Orlans, Mertens, and Sass-Lehrer (2003) reveals that both hearing and deaf parents have similar worries; deaf parents in particular are concerned that their child might experience the same hardships they did growing up. The chapter begins by explaining the importance of gathering information about hearing loss. It then provides various means for early identification of hearing loss such as hearing tests for infants and for older kids. Also included are different communication modes for children to use as a form of language, including American Sign Language and other manually coded English systems, as well as the incorporation of music in everyday life.

Keywords:   hearing parents, deaf parents, hearing tests, communication modes, American Sign Language, manually coded English, music
