While much attention is given to many aspects of the development of deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) children, little has been given to their siblings. Siblings of children who are DHH develop within the context of the entire family and so they may be impacted by the needs of their DHH sibling and way their family and environment respond to a DHH child. While there is a tendency to view having a sibling with any kind of special needs (including being DHH) as a risk factor, it should not be assumed that the impact on the typically developing sibling is negative.
