This article focuses on identity development among individuals who grew up as the only hearing child in an otherwise all-deaf family. Being the only hearing child (assuming they have deaf siblings) is quite different from being one of a number of hearing children of deaf parents. It is critical to enhance awareness among parents, teachers, and mental health professionals of such obstacles, particularly for children who are the only hearing members of their deaf families.
