A current, practical reference on pediatric audiologic rehabilitation

Pediatric Audiologic Rehabilitation presents evidence-based information on the clinical and educational management of children with hearing loss who are learning spoken language from infancy through adolescence. It provides students, clinicians, and teachers with the latest practical procedures and techniques for developing auditory and spoken language skills across a broad spectrum of ages and developmental stages.

Key Features:

  • Includes practical, realistic case examples that illustrate the application of audiologic rehabilitation techniques
  • Provides various clinical models of audiologic rehabilitation used by well-known leaders in the field
  • Contains a collection of strategies that practitioners can use to guide parents in their child's spoken language development
