Relationships Across Developmental Domains and Over Time

Show Summary Details


This chapter extends the analyses presented previously. First, intercorrelations among variables are investigated across behavioral and developmental domains at 18 months for all four groups. Second, two groups are created—one including all dyads with a deaf child and another including all dyads with a hearing child. Predictions of 12- and 18-month measures are then considered for all of the deaf children and, separately, for all of the hearing children. The focus of this set of analyses will be on the predictive power of specific observable mother and child behaviors, many of which are amenable to intervention, instead of the pre-existing, immutable characteristic of matched or unmatched hearing status.

Keywords: child behavior; hearing children; deaf children; mother and child
