The fourth edition of Children With Hearing Loss: Developing Listening and Talking, Birth to Six is a dynamic compilation of important information for the facilitation of spoken language for infants and young children with hearing loss. This fourth edition covers current and up-to-date information about auditory brain development, listening scenarios, auditory technologies, spoken language development, and intervention for young children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen to have them learn to listen and talk.
The book is divided into two parts. Part I, Audiological and Technological Foundations of Auditory Brain Development, consists of the first five chapters that lay the foundation for brain-based listening and talking. These chapters include neurological development and discussions of ear anatomy and physiology, pathologies that cause hearing loss, audiologic testing of infants and children, and the latest in amplification technologies. Part II, Developmental, Family-Focused Instruction for Listening and Spoken Language Enrichment, includes the second five chapters on intervention: listening, talking, and communicating through the utilization of a developmental and preventative model that focuses on enriching the child s auditory brain centers
This text is intended for undergraduate and graduate-level training programs for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and their families. This fourth edition is also directly relevant for parents, Listening and Spoken Language Specialists (LSLS Cert. AVT and LSLS Cert. AVEd), speech-language pathologists, audiologists, early childhood instructors, and teachers. In addition, much of the information in Chapters 1 through 5, and also Chapter 7 can be helpful to individuals of all ages who experience hearing loss, especially to newly diagnosed adults, as a practical owner s manual.
Review “In light of the amount of information in recent years about testing and management of hearing loss in infants, this book is much needed. Although scholarly in nature, the material is quite readable. The authors detail what chapters are better geared toward specific audiences. The advancement of newborn hearing screening has allowed for more options when it comes to intervention for children with hearing loss, therefore having this information in an updated format that is easily accessible is very important for this population of children and their families. The extensive audience includes students (undergraduate and graduate) and professionals working with children with hearing loss and their families, such as listening and spoken language specialists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, early childhood instructors, and, possibly most importantly, parents and individuals newly diagnosed with hearing loss. Although the information can be quite technical, the authors do a good job of pointing out what chapters will be most helpful to which audience members. Both Dr. Cole and Dr. Flexer have extensive experience working with people with hearing impairments, and they have authored numerous publications and have teaching and clinical experience.” –Yvana Uranga-Hernandez, PhD, CCC-SLP, Biola University, in Doody’s Book Reviews

⭐ I bought this book because my son is hearing impaired and I wanted to understand more of what he is going through. I have bought other audiology books that they are more appropriate for professionals than for parents. They were too technical. This book I like it very much because everything is explained in very simple terms. It explains the causes of hearing loss, what kind of tests the pediatric audiologist does to determine the degree of the hearing loss and what are the differences between them. It also devotes time to explain about the different technology that is out there to help children hear, i.e. hearing aids, cochlear implants, FM systems, etc. I really recommend this book to parents that really want to understand and find a way of helping their kids with hearing loss. It is written in a very simple way.
⭐ This textbook is very well organized. It starts from the basics. It explains the auditory system and how the auditory system and speech production system are linked. Great read for those wanting to work with children.
⭐ nice book
⭐ Outstanding resource. Easy to read. Written with comprehension and clarity. Includes recent research. Useful Appendixes. An exceptional book for anyone working with a hearing impaired or Deaf child.
⭐ Thank you
⭐ The book was clean, new and without folds.
⭐ Had this book as a requirement for a class a long time ago. Ok book, it was geared more towards birth to six years!
⭐ Carol Flexor has created a great text that explains all the facets about hearing loss and amplification equipment and then adds the appropriate therapy techniques to consider with this population. Easy to read and apply to your students with hearing impairments.
⭐ Cole and Flexer are on the cutting edge when it comes to teaching children with hearing loss to listen and speak. If you are a professional or parent involved with a child with hearing loss, this is a must read!
