Anyone interested in paediatric cochlear implantation will enjoy reading this.
Tell it like it is
It includes families with both deafened and born deaf children of various ages, with a wide variety of causes of deafness, methods of communication, additional needs, implant devices, unilateral, simultaneous and sequential bilaterals, educational placements and outcomes, as well as those who chose for their child not to be implanted or re-implanted.
The booklet is cross-referenced to enable readers to search for a particular scenario, eg auditory neuropathy, medical conditions, independent school, deaf twins, cued speech, etc.
We hope the booklet will be useful for families considering a cochlear implant for their child, and will also be interesting reading for those whose children already have implants, and indeed for the professionals who work with deaf children.
