The negative self perception of the deaf individual largely comes from the negative parental reactions and the lack of understanding of the child. In the field of deaf education it has become highly significant to examine carefully the important guidelines of the empowerment and resource orientation. This has to be done for the improvement of the understanding quotient of both the deaf children and their parents. A study conducted has revealed that the socioemotional problems... ?Developing...
