Abstract

We've developed a Chinese version of the Family Stress Scale for parents of hearing-impaired children. This context-specific measure is more sensitive to the stress experienced by parents of children with hearing impairment than general measures, such as the Parenting Stress Index. Top stressors include finance, discipline, education, medical care, safety, and communication. Notably, we found that speech intelligibility, oral language use, self-compassion of caregivers, and social support significantly impact family stress, explaining 46% of its variance in 257 children with hearing aids or cochlear implants. In addition, self-companion significantly moderates the relationship between family stress and children's oral language use. Copyright © 2024 American Academy of Audiology.
