This chapter explores the empowerment within a population of parents of pre-lingual children with hearing loss, where it can extend the model of patient-centred care to family-centred care, since, children are best understood in the context of their unique family constellations'. It introduces the video interaction guidance (VIG) intervention, which looks to build on a family's strengths and which allows the family to direct their own outcomes. It outlines the ways in which a small number of quantitative scales have been developed and the ways in which researchers have strived to characterise the parental experience of childhood deafness. Assessment of the child's cognitive, socio-emotional and vocal development was done using the Mullen Scales of Early Learning, the Vineland social emotional early childhood scales, video and speech acoustic analysis and qualitative analysis. A literature review was conducted through three digital libraries: Education Resources Information Center (ERIC), PubMed and ScienceDirect. Based on the search terms parental attitudes and child deafness.
