The research report describes a one-year study in which TLG's model of peer-based early intervention was applied for the first time to high-risk families of deaf parents and their children. "Many deaf parents have raised their families successfully, and are inappropriately stigmatized because of misguided presumptions about their parenting capabilities. However, some deaf parented families are vulnerable to dysfunction, child abuse and/or neglect because of risk factors comparable to those within hearing families...For those deaf parents who need information or services, resources are virtually non-existent."
