Early parent–child interactions influence children’s later linguistic, social-emotional, and cognitive development. Since deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children are more at risk for difficulties in their development than hearing children, the caregiving environment is an important context to enhance their development. This chapter describes different aspects of parent–child interactions that are related to the development of young DHH children. Parental language input, mental state language, and sensitivity are related to young DHH children’s language skills, social-emotional development, and executive functions. The chapter addresses parent-based interventions to promote DHH children’s linguistic, social-emotional, and cognitive development.

Keywords:   parent–child interaction, deaf, hard of hearing, language development, social-emotional development, executive functions, interventions
