Hearing Impaired Infants - Support in the First Eighteen Months
The tremendous amount of work that goes into the diagnosis and
subsequent management of a young child with a permanent sensory-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 Cochlear Implant, Parents Tell Their Stories
This wonderfully presented, non-biased book provides insight into the dilemmas faced by parents with a deaf child. Through the stories of 9 children, the reader shares the trials and knowledge acquired through the individual journeys from diagnosis, to school, the adoption of various communication tools and the roads of research that lead to their decisions.
Introduction to Augmentative and Alternative Communication
An increasing number of families and professionals are involved with severely communication-impaired children, adolescents and adults who use alternative communication systems to compensate for delayed systems and strategies that can be used to increase the communicative possibilities of people with limited spoken language. The authors discuss factors that are important when choosing communication systems, assessment strategies, environmental adaptation, and the principles for teaching comprehension and use of such communication systems to individuals with different disabilities; including motor impairments, learning disability and autism.
Time To Talk - Parents Accounts of Children's Speech Difficulties
"Time to Talk" is about the experience of having a child with early difficulties in
learning to talk. It is based on the accounts of the parents of 20 children who took part in a research project, evaluating the effectiveness of community-based speech and language therapy for pre-school children.
The book aims to provide information for parents and professionals working with young children about the difficulties that may arise in their speech and language development. It also describes what speech and language therapy may entail.
While the focus throughout the book is on the parents´ responses to their children´s difficulties and the therapy process they underwent, the parents´ accounts are supplemented with information from other research carried out in the field of early speech and language delays.
