Synopsis:

The purpose of this book is to share information on the support of hearing-impaired children, looking at the role of both professionals and parents. The two main aims are to convey what professionals do, the language they use, what influences their decision-making and some of the ramifications of hearing impairment; and secondly, to convey to professionals what it is like to discover that your child has a hearing impairment and to show what professionals can learn from parents about the experience of living with a child who does not hear well. The text attempts to encourage and facilitate a greater understanding of the roles of professionals and parents in the case of hearing-impaired children and to enable the team as a whole to work in a more efficient and supportive way, which should ultimately be of benefit to the children in their care. Designed to provide a tool for teaching, learning and working with hearing impaired children, the book does not set out to be prescriptive or to promote any one method rather than another.

Its purpose is to aid professionals in understanding how they can best work alongside the parents of those children in their care, to give parents access to information that can help them make effective choices and to build their confidence so that they can secure appropriate support for their hearing-impaired child.

From the Back Cover:

The tremendous amount of work that goes into the diagnosis and subsequent management of a young child with a permanent sensori–neural hearing loss involves both professionals from health and education services and parents. Though it is now widely accepted by professionals that parents should be regarded as full members of the team supporting the hearing–impaired child, many still do not have a clear idea of what this means in practice. The purpose of this book is to share information about this work among all those involved. Written by professionals who have long experience of working in real co–operation with parents and who allow the voice of parents to come through clearly, the book has two main aims. First, to convey in a clear and readable way what professionals do, the language they use, what influences their decision–making and some of the ramifications of hearing impairment; and, secondly, to convey to professionals what it is like to discover that your child has a hearing impairment and to show what professionals can learn from parents about the experience of living twenty–four hours a day with a child who does not hear well.
