Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A(George Washington University)
Description: To provide a perspective of hearing loss that is broader than a diseased/disordered system, the authors present a collaborative approach among professionals to develop auditory, spoken, and written language abilities in persons with hearing loss. This book explains the development of speech, hearing, language, and literacy in d/Deaf and hard of hearing children; discusses the latest advances in cochlear implants, hearing aids, speechreading, and visual phonics; explores how hearing rehabilitation affects English language acquisition; offers sound guidance on how to apply knowledge to professional practice; and facilitates learning through informative summaries, challenge questions, and problem-solving activities.
Purpose: The book is intended to provide clear explanations of the development of speech, hearing, language, and literacy in d/Deaf and hard of hearing children and adolescents. The authors also strive to offer new insights into the contribution of hearing rehabilitation to English language acquisition.
Audience: According to the authors, this is an ideal introductory textbook for students in undergraduate and graduate courses that cover the development of speech, language, and hearing in the d/Deaf and hard of hearing, as well as for educators working with young children and adolescents. This excellent overview will serve as an excellent resource for students pursuing careers in deaf education, audiology, and speech pathology. It offers a thorough description of the audiological dimensions of hearing and how hearing loss affects speech, language, and literacy. I truly wish a book like this had been available when I was in graduate school. Both authors are professors at The Ohio State University. Dr. Paul, a professor in the School of Teaching and Learning in the College of Education & Human Ecology, has published extensively on language and literacy development of individuals with hearing impairment. Dr. Whitelaw, director of Clinical Instruction and Research in the Department of Speech and Hearing Science, teaches courses in pediatric and educational audiology and is frequently an invited presenter on auditory processing, auditory development, room acoustics, and leadership development.
Features: The book takes readers from the anatomy and physiology of the auditory system to the audiologic test process, with excellent discussions of hearing aid technologies, assistive listening devices, and cochlear implantation along the way. Threaded throughout all the chapters is the concept of sound input for language development. This is clearly demonstrated in the discussions of hearing, speech, and language development; hearing, language, and literacy development; and speechreading and auditory development. Each chapter begins with relevant quotes and a review of key concepts and concludes with a summary of major points, questions, suggested activities, references, and additional resources.
Assessment: This is an excellent overview of anatomy/physiology, speech and hearing science, assisted listening devices, and speech, language, and literacy issues. The authors also discuss team-based approaches for addressing the educational and audiological complexities of students with hearing loss. The presentation is somewhat more relaxed than is typical in a textbook, which may prove attractive and interesting to college students. I recommend this as an additional resource for professionals and students alike.
