Experience of a Deaf Pediatrician Working with Families in a Deaf Medical Home

Dr. Robert Nutt is a pediatrician who cares for families in both a primary pediatrics clinic and a developmental-behavioral pediatrics specialty clinic. Dr. Nutt’s lifelong experience with bilateral hearing loss has made him a role model for his patients and their families. His proficiency in spoken English and American Sign Language (ASL) allow him to connect in unique ways with families and children. Dr. Nutt will reflect on his life experience as an individual with hearing loss and describe his experience caring for children and families through the differences between four permutations of parent-child dyads (Hearing/Deaf parents, Hearing/Deaf child). This session will provide unique insight into the complexities faced by parents and professionals providing primary care for families affected by hearing loss with an emphasis on interdisciplinary, child-centered decision making.
