Abstract

To collect parents' evaluation of support services in Denmark, questionnaires were distributed to parents of children who are deaf or hard of hearing. Some few results and conclusions are picked out in the article below. Parents' comments show some recurrent features: counselling must be offered and should be offered immediately after confirmed diagnosis, there is a need for psychological support at an early time, for qualified advisers, for written information to be distributed, and for co-operation between advisers of the family.
