Professionals will find a wide range of topics relevant to their work with hearing impaired children or those suspected of having an impairment in this book. A chapter on epidemiology includes the prevalence of hearing impairment and several additional chapters are devoted to the various causative factors. Detection of a hearing loss, measurement of the degree of hearing loss and identification of the site of lesion are covered together with management of any hearing loss found. Individual chapters give coverage to balance disorders, tinnitus, progressive hearing loss, auditory neuropathy, central auditory processing disorders and unilateral hearing impairment. Methods of communication, communication disorders and the psychological effects of a hearing impairment are included together with consideration of education and employment issues.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Irene Sideris, PhD (Children's National Medical Center)
Description: In this overview of the field of pediatric audiology, each chapter highlights a different area of importance for a thorough understanding of the field.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide up-to-date information for clincians practicing pediatric audiology. This is certainly a worthy yet difficult objective. New research is continually changing clincial practice and this book provides an understanding of current practices in the field. This book did meet these objectives. Readers can gain much important information and the references can be used for more extensive research into a particular area.
Audience: According to the author, this book is targeted at clinicans currently practicing in the field of pediatric audiology. This book is well written for the intended audience. I also feel that this book could be used by graduate students in the field. The author and contributors are all authorities in the field.
Features: This book covers a broad range of topics of importance to the field of pediatric audiology. Topics ranging from the embryonic development of the ear to the educational management of the hearing-impaired child are well developed. An important aspect of this book is the emphasis placed on what happens to the child after the hearing loss is identified and hearing aids are selected. The chapters covering the psychological effects of hearing impariment, educational methodologies, speech and language development, and educational management of the hearing impaired child all provide necessary information for those practicing in the field. Topics such as balance disorders and management of tinnitus are also useful to clinicians.
Assessment: This would serve as an excellent reference for clincians working in the field. Each chapter provides an in-depth view of the topic and references are available for those seeking additional information. Many of the individual chapter authors are considered authorities in the field. This book is similar in scope to Northern and Downs's Hearing in Children, 6th edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2002), but targeted at a different audience.
