Written by Drs. Cole and Flexer in response to the crucial need for a comprehensive text dedicated to the thorough training of professionals working with babies and young children who have hearing loss, Children with Hearing Loss: Developing Listening and Talking Birth to Six provides a framework for the skills and knowledge necessary in helping parents promote spoken language development through listening in their young children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
This new book covers the most current and up-to-date information about hearing, listening, spoken language development, and intervention for young children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen to have them learn to listen and talk. It is unique in its scholarly and thoroughly readable style. Numerous illustrations, charts, and graphs illuminate key ideas.
Children with Hearing Loss: Developing Listening and Talking Birth to Six is intended for graduate level training programs for teachers of children who have hearing loss, audiologists, and speech-language pathologists, but undergraduate speech-language-hearing programs, early childhood education and intervention programs, and parents of children who have hearing loss will also have interest in this new publication.
This new title is an essential addition to the personal and professional libraries of students, clinicians, and parents alike.
