BOLSONI-SILVA, Alessandra Turini et al. Práticas educativas parentais de crianças com deficiência auditiva e de linguagem. Rev. bras. educ. espec. [online]. 2010, vol.16, n.02, pp.265-282. ISSN 1413-6538.

The behavior of parents and children are mutually influential. Children with language disorders, whether or not they are related to hearing loss, may present difficulties in relationships with siblings and peers. Thus, the investigation of parenting practices and child behavioral repertoire is essential for finding effective interventions for these children. This study aims to: (a) compare the positive and negative repertoire of mothers and children with hearing impairments (HI) and language disorder (LD); (b) compare each of the disabilities to a non-clinical population, (c) correlate behaviors for each of the disabilities. Seventy two mothers whose children presented HI (n = 27), LD (n = 19), or composed a non-clinic population (n = 26) participated in this study. The instrument used was the Roadmap Interview Social Skills for parenting, which assesses the occurrence of social skills applicable to educational practice. The results showed positive association between practices and social skills, as well as between negative practices and behavior problems. The LD group did not present more problems than non-clinical children, suggesting the involvement of preventive intervention that facilitates social inclusion. On the other hand, children with HI presented few social skills, and their mothers, likewise, presented few social educational skills. Aiming to enhance educational programs that promote positive parental repertoire including the goals of speech-language and hearing loss therapy, this study highlights the importance of the methodology that was employed in rehabilitating children with communication disorders, particularly for those with HI.
