From a mother whose daughter has hearing loss, and an audiologist with more than thirty years experience with deaf and hard-of-hearing children and their families, this comprehensive volume offers parents critical information on everything from technical information to practical and emotional support. Among the subjects covered are causes of hearing loss; testing and assessment; technical advances in hearing aids, FM systems, and cochlear implants; the role of specialists including audiologists, otolaryngologists, geneticists, and speech-language pathologists; advocating for your child's welfare in educational, social, and public environments; and practical solutions to everyday problems. Although aimed primarily at parents, it is equally useful for the professionals who work with children who have hearing loss, as it provides a picture of the world of hearing loss from a family perspective.
