Variability in maternal sensitivity is hypothesized to affect children’s inhibitory control and language development. Data from 3- to 8-year-old normal hearing and deaf/hard-of-hearing children and their primary caregiver were used to evaluate differences in parental sensitivity between the groups and direct effects of parental sensitivity on receptive language and inhibitory control. The results have implications for counseling parents about communicating with their children and for early intervention in children with hearing loss.
