#etvSunrise: Children of Deaf Adults

14 February 2018

On Wednesday morning we find out about some of the challenges of being a deaf parent to hearing children. Sunrise, weekdays at 5:30AM.

According to statistics more than 90% of all deaf parents have hearing children, referred to as CODAs, which stands for Children of Deaf Adults.

Although these families might face many challenges there are also advantages of being a deaf parent to a hearing child.

Join us as we discuss some of the challenges and advantages CODA families are encountering.

Later in the show we’ll discuss broken heart syndrome which is caused by stressful situations. Symptoms of broken heart syndrome can include sudden chest pain or it may even feel like you’re having a heart attack.   

Catch Sunrise Mondays to Fridays on OVHD Channel 104 and DStv channel 194 from 5:30AM -8:30AM.
