Book and audio CD. Choices in Deafness, since 1987 the pre-eminent guide to communication options, is now extensively revised and expanded to provide the complete scope of information parents of children with deafness or hearing loss need. From assessment and diagnosis to medical/audiological treatments, and from the latest types of cochlear implants and procedures to education and technology devices, this new edition presents a balance of research, guidance, and insight from experts and families. Seven new chapters plus an audio CD cover: Universal Newborn Screening (implemented in 38 states, this required screening detects hearing loss much earlier, and has doubled the number of children found to have hearing loss) Auditory Neuropathy (a cause of hearing loss where the timing of sound is seriously disrupted, and which has only recently been understood) Genetic Causes of Deafness (describes genetic testing and counselling in light of research that shows over 60% of deafness in children is due to genetic or hereditary causes) The Transformation of Dreams (explores a shift in emotional outlook experienced by a parent/clinical psychologist upon learning her child is deaf) Identifying a Program of Excellence (what to look for in an education program for your child in addition to the chosen communication option) Communication Technology (services and devices that let deaf people communicate via phone, cell phone, Internet, video) Making It in College (personal accounts of four students about how they communicate and socialise at college) What Hearing Loss Sounds Like (a seven-minute audio CD depicts what speech sounds like as it simulates how hearing loss can affect pitch, loudness, and timing) As in the previous edition, Choices in Deafness presents five unbiased approaches to communication -- Auditory-Verbal, ASL-English Bilingual, Cued Speech, Auditory-Oral, and Total Communication -- and provides parents' first-person accounts of what it's like to use a specific method. Reading and resource lists round out this essential guide for parents.

Parents, teachers, and speech therapists may be a bit baffled by what is supposed to take place in language development after cochlear implant surgery. In the case of children with little or no language, it is important that all who can support the child be aware of how they can help. The child should be "bathed" in sound recognition and ultimately, language. In this book, you will find strategies for language and/or speech development to be used after a cochlear implant, going by order of the months following surgery; for example, what you might do a few months after surgery, 6 months after, 18 months after, etc. building on what is learned and adding new sounds to those that the brain has learned to interpret. There is an order: those sounds both heard and seen on the lips, followed by sounds that use that interpretation to understand the next sounds. While learning speech is important, understanding language as a means to convey thought and concepts is just as important. The child needs to associate speech with communication. This guide can be an invaluable source of help.

"An investigation into the science of hearing, child language acquisition, neuroplasticity, brain development, and Deaf culture spurred by Lydia Denworth's discovery that her son couldn't hear her lullabies and the family's life-altering decision to give him a cochlear implant. Lydia Denworth's third son, Alex, was almost two when he was diagnosed with profound and progressive hearing loss. As both a science writer and the mother of young children, Denworth was steeped in messages about the importance of enrichment to the developing brain. She became determined to do whatever it took to allow Alex to hear and acquire spoken language, a quest that ultimately led to a controversial piece of emergent "superhero technology": the cochlear implant. In this engrossing journey to the frontiers of science, readers will learn why sound is so important to the developing brain, what new possibilities come from the latest research, and what exactly is going on when you focus your hearing at a cocktail party. Denworth goes beyond her personal experience with her son, interviewing the world's leading experts on child language development and hearing technology, leaders in the deaf community, and neuroscientists. I Can Hear You Whisper weaves together Alex's story with the tales of two scientific revolutions: the centuries-long quest to develop the cochlear implant and science's changing understanding of the brain's remarkable plasticity-all told against the sometimes-incendiary backdrop of identity politics and medical ethics."--

Jennifer Rosner’s revelatory memoir explores family, silence, and what it means to be heard. When her daughters are born deaf, Rosner is stunned. Then she discovers a hidden history of deafness in her family, going back generations to the Jewish enclaves of Eastern Europe. Traveling back in time, she imagines her silent relatives, who showed surprising creativity in dealing with a world that preferred to ignore them. Rosner shares her journey into the modern world of deafness, and the controversial decisions she and her husband have made about hearing aids, cochlear implants and sign language. An imaginative odyssey, punctuated by memories of being unheard, Rosner’s story of her daughters’ deafness is at heart a story of whether she—a mother with perfect hearing—will hear her children.

In her book, Raising Kids with Cochlear Implants, Amy Milani shares personal narratives about her experience raising a son and daughter with cochlear implants. Excerpts from a journal she wrote following her son's surgery describe exactly how he began listening and learning language with a cochlear implant. Stories pulled from daily life as expatriates in Germany reveal how her son acquires a selection of favorite words. When her daughter is also born with hearing loss, the family moves back to the U.S. to find an appropriate preschool and support system for cochlear implants and to fully embrace oral deaf education. In alternate chapters, Amy discusses broader issues affecting family life such as the challenges a young child faces wearing equipment and the social implications of hearing in a way that's unfamiliar to most people. Her narratives provide authentic evidence of the joys and struggles parents experience when helping children with cochlear implants transition into the hearing world. Speaking from thirteen years of experience, Amy addresses the commitment required by parents to help their children learn to listen and speak with cochlear implants. Her personal narratives are of a family ready to take on the responsibility for their children's hearing well beyond surgery. She explains how her son and daughter are part of a new generation of kids identified early with hearing loss who grow up with cochlear implants, relying on parents to make it all happen. She calls these children "Generation CI." In this book, she motivates new parents to get answers about their child's hearing loss and hopes to reach those who are interested in learning more about what life is like for families with young children who have cochlear implants.

Deaf children are not hearing children who can't hear, and having a deaf child is not analogous to having a hearing child who can't hear. Beyond any specific effects of hearing loss, deaf children are far more diverse than their hearing age-mates. A lack of access to language, limited incidental learning and social interactions, as well as the possibility of secondary disabilities, mean that deaf children face a variety of challenges in language, social, and academic domains. In recent years, technological innovations such as digital hearing aids and cochlear implants have improved hearing and the possibility of spoken language for many deaf learners, but parents, teachers, and other professionals are just now coming to recognize the cognitive, experiential, and social-emotional differences between deaf and hearing children. Sign languages and schools and programs for deaf learners thus remain an important part of the continuum of services needed for this population. Understanding the unique strengths and needs of deaf children is the key. Now in its third edition, Marc Marschark's Raising and Educating a Deaf Child, which has helped a countless number of families, offers a comprehensively clear, evidence-based guide to the choices, controversies, and decisions faced by parents and teachers of deaf children today.
