School Professionals Working With Children With Cochlear Implants

This new book is a comprehensive resource for school-based professionals who work with the increasing number of children with cochlear implants. Focusing on giving the reader critical background information, the well-known authors begin with the history, technology, and functionality of cochlear implants. They cover the changes seen in the populations now utilizing these devices and describe how the impact of having an implant can affect a child. Finally, they highlight how the clinician and team providing services can best address each child s individual needs. Special consideration is given to the multidisciplinary team and the culture of collaboration: handling the effects of family influence and participation, issues of special populations (such as non-English-speaking parents), and providing services that best address individual children s needs. Throughout the text, the authors address new questions and issues resulting from the rapidly evolving technology. The authors detail the effects of more and younger children receiving cochlear implants entering into school systems and discuss the emerging and increased role of the speech pathologist. The book is the ideal guide and supplies the school professional with tools for providing the best possible direction and options for children with cochlear implants.
