This chapter focuses on developing a clinical practice with Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing individuals. Providing therapeutic services to this specialized population requires knowledge and training in many areas. While the linguistic implications are most obvious, clinicians must also take into account assistive technology, legal and ethical issues, and cultural identity, to name only a few. The author, a psychologist who has trained and practiced extensively with these individuals, describes her practice with this population, including training for, building, and marketing this niche. Developing a practice that understands and meets the needs of deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals can be challenging and rewarding. The chapter also provides a list of resources.
