This new book is a comprehensive resource for school-based professionals who work with the increasing number of children with cochlear implants. Focusing on giving the reader critical background information, the well-known authors begin with the history, technology, and functionality of cochlear implants. They cover the changes seen in the populations now utilizing these devices and describe how the impact of having an implant can affect a child. Finally, they highlight how the clinician and team providing services can best address each child's individual needs. Special consideration is given to the multidisciplinary team and the culture of collaboration: handling the effects of family influence and participation, issues of special populations (such as non-English-speaking parents), and providing services that best address individual children's needs.

Throughout the text, the authors address new questions and issues resulting from the rapidly evolving technology. The authors detail the effects of more and younger children receiving cochlear implants entering into school systems and discuss the emerging and increased role of the speech pathologist. The book is the ideal guide and supplies the school professional with tools for providing the best possible direction and options for children with cochlear implants. A CD of resources from the three major cochlear implant manufacturers accompanies the text.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A(George Washington University)
Description: Written with school personnel in mind, this book provides information about changes in cochlear implantation during the past 15 years, the importance and benefits of collaborative teams for the provision of services, and the development and characteristics of speech-language-auditory-social skills in children with cochlear implants. Appendixes include information on organizational resources, and FM manufacturer resources. This is one of a series of three titles by the authors.
Purpose: The book was written to ensure that those who play such a vital role in the lives of these children have the information they need to facilitate their development and learning. The other books in the series are Children with Cochlear Implants in Educational Settings and The Parents' Guide to Cochlear Implants. This title is a welcome addition.
Audience: According to the authors, this book is intended for school professionals who impact the lives of children — their teachers, aides, resource personnel — to give them the knowledge about implants that will enable these children to reach their fullest potential. The authors have more than 25 years of experience as speech and hearing professionals, with particular expertise and international renown with cochlear implants.
Features: The book provides information about the development and changes in cochlear implantation and characteristics of educational and collaborative team programs that are necessary to support and meet the needs of children with cochlear implants. There are also discussions about auditory skills development and the difficulties posed by listening in noisy classrooms, as well as solutions to dealing with noise, such as improving room acoustics, FM systems and assistive devices. Also important is a discussion on the relationship of hearing to speech perception to literacy (reading) skills achievement. Of note is a glimpse of the future — technological advances, within the context of the professionals in the field as well as the individual with hearing loss.
Assessment: This welcome addition to the series was written to ensure that those who work with children with cochlear implants day in and day out have the knowledge and skills to help these children reach their fullest potential.
