Taller-Azulay, Galia, and Alina Simona Rusu. “Parents’ Involvement in Supporting Education of Hearing Impaired Children in Israel.” Procedia – Social and Behavioral Sciences 209.3 (2015): 188-94.
This article aims to investigate the psycho-pedagogical variables associated to the parents’ involvement in the special education of the hearing impaired children in Israel. It is generally acknowledged that parents of disabled children often go through a grieving process after the birth of their children. We assume that there is a difference between parents in regards to their gender and to the individual coping mechanisms with the birth process of a child with hearing impairment. All these differences are expected to be reflected in the level of parental involvement in the special education of their children.
