A comprehensive volume written by leading researchers, clinicians, and educators in the field, Clinical Management of Children With Cochlear Implants, Second Edition offers a guide for practitioners, instructors, and students. The book builds on over thirty-five years of collective experience in pediatric cochlear implantation and addresses contemporary practices. The authors share their expertise in such disciplines as otolaryngology, pediatrics, audiology, speech-language pathology, habilitation, education, electrophysiology, psychology, and clinical research. Although many of the chapters from the first edition remain relevant today, the field continues to evolve with advancements in technology, expanding indications, and patient demographics. The second edition reflects these changes with new topics and expanded updates, presenting up-to-date research findings with implications for clinical management of the pediatric implant population.

New to this edition:

  • New chapters on neurocognitive assessment, dual language learning, early literacy, family-centered habilitation, and development of evidence-based programs
  • Expanded chapters on device programming, education, and auditory brainstem implants
  • Updates in research and clinical practices in assessment and management


    • John Graham, Cochlear Implants International, Vol 17, No. 5 (September 2016):
      "This very substantial book has 23 chapters in four sections and covers all you might possibly need to know on the subject of cochlear implants in children. . . . The book is clear evidence of Laurie Eisenberg's eminence in the field, of her powers of persuasion and also of the obvious popularity and high level of usefulness of the first edition of her book. Each chapter combines research findings with their practical application. It represents a very substantial 'Bible' and is both an essential work of reference and a practical guide for all of those who work in the field of implants for the deaf and hard of hearing: each of us should cer­tainly have a copy on our bookshelf!"

    • Tracey Twomey, Consultant Clinical Scientist, Head of Service, Nottingham Auditory Implant Programme, Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust, UK, ENT and Audiology News (May/June 2017):
      "This substantial volume is nearly 900 pages long but definitely worth the shelf space. That said, it hasn't actually made it to a shelf since its arrival at our department as everyone who spotted it has wanted to borrow it! The multidisciplinary areas of paediatric clinical cochlear implant (CI) management are comprehensively and expertly covered in its 23 chapters. Beyond the technical, research and reference updates expected of a second edition, it also includes new areas such as neurocognitive assessment which, in line with the style of the book as a whole, are accessible to the non-specialists amongst us. The broadening of both criteria and experience in CI is reflected in the detailed rehabilitation and education section and insightful chapters on special populations, including low socioeconomic groups, additional disabilities, auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder and use of brainstem implants. Many chapters also make useful reading for professionals supporting moderate to severly hearing impaired children outside of the cochlear implant clinic and referring clinicians."
