The purpose of this study is to determine the attitudes and stressors of parents of children who are deaf. Parents of children with differing levels of hearing loss and communication modalities participated in this study. An electronic questionnaire assessed parents’ attitudes and stress levels that are involved in the Northwest Arkansas Hands and Voices program. The parents received a qualitative survey generated from Survey Monkey examining how their attitudes and stress are affected by their child’s hearing loss and if the Hands and Voices program alleviates some of the stress they may experience. Descriptive analyses were used to examine the results.
