The third edition of Children With Hearing Loss: Developing Listening and Talking, Birth to Six provides updated information from the previous two editions for both professionals and parents facilitating spoken language through listening (auditory brain access, stimulation, and development) in infants and young children with hearing loss. Also addressed is auditory brain development, audiologic technologies, auditory skill development, spoken language development, as well as family-focused intervention for young children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen to have them learn to listen and talk.

Additionally, this new edition is expanded to reflect important and rapidly evolving changes that have developed in the past five years, including:

Application of neuroscience research to our knowledge of the foundations of listening and talking (Chapter 1)Current information on vestibular function in infants and young children (Chapters 2 and 3)Essential technology updates (Chapter 5)Expansion of the discussion of types of services a child with age-appropriate skills needs to sustain a positive academic trajectory (Chapter 6)Discussion of the use and efficacy of coaching and other parent guidance strategies (Chapter 10)Updated resources (Appendix 6)


This text is intended for undergraduate- and graduate-level training programs for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and their families. This third edition is also a valuable resource for parents, listening and spoken language specialists (LSLS), speech-language pathologists, audiologists, early childhood instructors, and teachers. Furthermore, much of the information in Chapters 1 through 5 and Chapter 7 is beneficial to individuals of all ages with hearing loss, especially newly-diagnosed adults.

About the author

Elizabeth B. Cole, EdD, is the director of Soundbridge, a program of the Capitol Region Education Council in Connecticut. Soundbridge is a statewide public school program that provides a wide variety of services to more than 700 children (birth through secondary school) whose parents want their children with hearing loss to use spoken language to communicate and learn.

Dr. Cole first began working with preschoolers with hearing loss in 1973, when the majority of children with hearing loss used body hearing aids with Y-cords and button receivers and were learning through listening and watching. After receiving her master’s degree in audiology and doctorate in special education (hearing impairment) in 1980 with Drs. Laura and Richard Kretschmer at the University of Cincinnati, Dr. Cole worked with Dr. Daniel Ling at McGill University for 16 years, during which time powerful hearing aids became miniaturized and behind the ear, and cochlear implants for children became increasingly widespread. She taught courses in acoustic phonetics, language and development, as well as aural habilitation to prospective teachers, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists in the School of Communication Sciences. Dr. Cole has lectured widely on those topics, in addition to serving as an adjunct professor at the University of Hartford and at the University of North Carolina (first years program) before coming to Soundbridge in 1996. 

Carol Flexer, PhD, received her doctorate in audiology from Kent State University in 1982. She was a distinguished professor of audiology in the School of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology at the University of Akron for 25 years. Her special areas of expertise include pediatric and educational audiology. Dr. Flexer continues to lecture extensively nationally and internationally about pediatric audiology issues, and has authored more than 155 publications.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture
