Children with Hearing Loss PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Children with Hearing Loss free pdf In this day and age, we are dealing with a vastly different population of children with hearing loss, a population that never before in history have we had. With this new population, whose hearing loss is identified at birth, we can now prevent the developmental and communicative effects of hearing loss that were so common just a few years ago. With these babies and young children, we can now work primarily from a developmental and preventive perspective rather than from a remedial, corrective one. What has happened in the field of hearing loss is revolutionary. This second edition of Developing Listening and Talking, Birth to Six remains a dynamic compilation of crucially important information for the facilitation of auditorally-based spoken language for today's infants and young children with hearing loss. This text is intended for graduate level training programs for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and their families (teachers, therapists, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists.) In addition, the book will be of great interest to undergraduate speech-language-hearing programs, early childhood education and intervention programs, and parents of children who have hearing loss. Responding to the crucial need for a comprehensive text, this book provides a framework for the skills and knowledge necessary to help parents promote listening and spoken language development. This second edition covers current and up-to-date information about hearing, listening, auditory technology, auditory development, spoken language development, and intervention for young children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen to have them learn to listen and talk. Additions include updated information about hearing instruments and cochlear implants and about ways that professionals can support parents in promoting their children's language and listening development. Information about preschool program selection and management has been included. The text also features a revised auditory development checklist. A new appendix provides an important and useful tool for professionals who are interested in AG Bell Academy's Listening and Spoken Language Specialist Certification Program (LSLS) -- LSLS Cert. AVT and LSLS Cert. AVEd. This appendix lists the competencies required for the LSLS, and references each chapter of the book with regard to those requirements. This book is unique in its scholarly, yet thoroughly readable style. Numerous illustrations, charts, and graphs illuminate key ideas. This second edition should be the foundation of the personal and professional libraries of students, clinicians, and parents who are interested in listening and spoken language outcomes for children with hearing loss.
