Behavior problems with deaf Dutch boys.

Author information

Institut voor Doven Effatha, The Netherlands.


During an investigation into behavioral problems of deaf children, 41 deaf boys were compared to a large group of hearing children of the same age. T.M. Achenbach's Child Behavior Checklist was used for data collection and analysis. It appeared the deaf boys had more behavioral problems overall but that they were no more often disturbed than their hearing counterparts. Internalizing and externalizing behavioral problems emerged with greater frequency in the deaf group. Younger deaf boys showed more behavioral problems than older deaf boys with differences in age emerging as discriminating factors.
