Emotions intervene in the affective, cognitive, psychological and physical development of the young. Nevertheless, in the infant emotional development, a fundamental stage for the overall childhood development, several factors come into play, among which their exposure to the audio-visual contents is found. In the case of the hearing impaired children, it is necessary they have access to children’s programmes.

For this reason, we analyze the role emotions play in the overall development of the child’s and the repercussions in their teen years. Furthermore, we analyze the influence TV has in this sense and we enter in the domain of the audiovisual translation, paying special attention on the subtitles for the hearing impaired. We apply what we have learnt, offering a subtitling proposal for the hearing impaired in one chapter from “Peppa pig”.

Finally, we will try to bring to light the importance of a correct subtitling for the hearing impaired and its influence on children’s emotional development.
