Assessing Listening and Spoken Language in Children with Hearing Loss is a comprehensive resource guide in assessments for professionals who provide care to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children who are deaf and/or hard of hearing. The combined knowledge of the editors - an audiologist and a speech-language pathologist, both with 20 years of experience working with children with hearing loss and their families as well as extensive publications and presentations on the topic - brings valuable insights, experience, and research to this book. This book provides information on assessing the whole child, what measures to consider, and how to communicate the findings. It is the distinct source for practical information on how to develop a test protocol, select appropriate tests, ensure a comprehensive assessment, and integrate the findings into an appropriate treatment plan. As a unique resource that focuses on a relevant topic in today's accountability culture, this book will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students in deaf education and communication sciences and disorders, practicing professionals such as speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and psychologists, professionals studying for advanced certifications, as well as teachers of children with hearing loss, professors of aural (re)habilitation, special educators, school administrators, and early intervention service coordinators. Assessing Listening and Spoken Language in Children with Hearing Loss fills the need for texts that address the evaluation of speech, language, and functional listening outcomes in children with hearing loss.
