Parental involvement in the care and intervention of children with hearing loss.
Int J Audiol. 2018 05; 57(sup2):S15-S26.IJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

The present study aimed to explore the nature of parental involvement in the intervention of children with hearing loss, as experienced by parents.

DESIGN

A qualitative descriptive methodology was adopted to conduct semi-structured in-depth interviews with a purposive sample of parents who have a child with hearing loss.

STUDY SAMPLE

Seventeen parents of 11 children aged 6-9 years participated in this study.

RESULTS

The overarching theme of parents taking the central role was identified using thematic analysis. This overarching theme connected five themes which described the nature of parental involvement: (1) parents work behind the scenes; (2) parents act as 'case managers'; (3) parents always have their child's language development in mind; (4) parents' role extends to advocacy for all children with hearing loss; and (5) parents serve a number of roles, but at the end of the day, they are parents.

CONCLUSIONS

The results indicate that parental involvement in the intervention of children with hearing loss is multifaceted in nature and incorporates a broad range of behaviours and practices. These findings have important implications for the provision of family-centred practices.
