Abstract: Family involvement plays a critical factor in the language development of a deaf or hearing impaired child. Hearing parents often have major difficulties in communicating with their child when it is deaf or hearing impaired. These difficulties often lead to issues in the language development of the child. In this research we investigate the feasibility of a serious game for involving parents in the language development of their deaf or hearing impaired child by using sign language together in a fun and engaging way. From the feasibility analysis we find that such a serious game is feasible and could help deaf and hearing impaired children to improve their language development.
