Presented with emphasis on medical aspects of pediatric hearing loss, it covers identification, evaluation and management of children with hearing impairments and deafness. Features updates and discussions of new hearing tests and screening technologies, guidelines and position statements, discussions on the role of the family in childhood deafness and schools of thought in the management of children with hearing loss, and hearing aid fitting and management issues. A new chapter addresses Otitis Media. Features an alphabetized appendix of ninety syndromes and common disorders associated with childhood deafness presented in encyclopedia-like format.
