Book Description Plume. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Book Condition: New. Science journalist Lydia Denworth's third son Alex was nearly two when he was identified with significant hearing loss that was likely to get worse. Denworth knew the importance of enrichment to the developing brain but had never contemplated the opposite: deprivation. How would a child's brain grow outside the world of sound? How would he communicate? Would he learn to read and write? Denworth made it her mission to find out, interviewing experts on language development, inventors of groundbreaking technology, and neuroscientists at the frontiers of brain plasticity research, as well as those who communicate without hearing. She chronicles both her search for answers and her new understanding of Deaf culture and the exquisite relationship between sound, language, and learning."Veteran journalist Denworth eloquently explains how hearing works and fails. After she and her doctors figure out that Alex is silent because he doesn't know what people are saying, he gets a cochlear implant at age two, which turns out to be a miraculous device. Denworth weaves her son's story throughout her easy-to-understand primer on how people hear, listen, speak, and read. Reporter that she is—having worked at Newsweek and People and published stories in the New York Times—Denworth interviews many top experts and cites the work of researchers past and present. An excellent book for anyone with deafness in the family or with a desire to better understand how people hear, why hearing loss occurs, and how it is treated."—Booklist 390.
