The Handbook of Pediatric Audiology presents 14 comprehensive chapters written by the preeminent expert in each discipline. Clinicians and students now can refer to specific subjects in pediatric audiology for treating children from infancy through their elementary school years.

Practitioners will be able to rely upon this complete volume as they would a trusted consultant thoroughly knowledgeable about indications and treatments for every condition. The Handbook of Pediatric Audiology offers contributions by Yash Pal Kapur, Franklin A. Katz, Robert J. Ruben, Allan O. Diefendorf and Judith S. Gravel, Jane R. Madell, Shlomo Silman and Carol A. Silverman, and Herbert Jay Gold and Maurice Mendel. Judith A. Brimacombe and Anne L. Beiter present the latest clinical information on cochlear implants in children, including the current debate on cultural considerations. Audiology and education are discussed by E. Harris Nober, and George T. Mencher advises audiologists on counseling families of deaf and hard of hearing children. Evelyn Cherow presents several models of service delivery. These well-known authorities and the many others within make The Handbook of Pediatric Audiology an indispensable resource for clinicians and students alike.
