Interactions of Hearing Mothers and 9-Month-Old Infants

Show Summary Details

Because temperament data were not collected from the two groups of deaf mothers, this discussion includes only hearing mothers, groups deaf (Hd) and hearing (Hh).

Keywords: hearing mothers; infant stress; parent-infant interactions
