What Percentage of Deaf Children Are Born to Hearing Parents?

Answer

Approximately 90% of the deaf children are born to hearing parents. This is caused by both genetic and non-genetic factors like inheritance of deafness from one or both parents or an infection that the mother might have had during pregnancy such as cytomegalovirus. For example parents like Robert Schiffbauer, and his wife, Shirley, use American Sign Language to communicate with their daughter Lisa in the United States.
