The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, Second Edition is the most wide-ranging and complete work of its kind and has become the definitive reference in the specialty area of pediatric audiology. Content areas range from typical auditory development, to identification and diagnostic processes, to medical and audiologic management of childhood hearing and ear disorders. An interdisciplinary assembly of 66 internationally-recognized experts from the fields of audiology, speech-language pathology, education, pediatric medicine, and otology contributed to this second edition. Building from the success of the first edition, and aligning with the evolution of the profession, this edition expands and deepens its coverage of early identification of hearing loss, etiology and medical considerations, and hearing technologies, especially implantable devices and the measurement of outcomes resulting from intervention.

The second edition:

  • Includes new chapters on the measurement of outcomes resulting from intervention, preventable hearing loss, implementation of newborn hearing screening programs, and the future of implantable devices, among others.
  • Reflects a reorganization for improved sequencing of content areas
  • Provides substantial updating of previous chapters

The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, Second Edition is intended for use in doctoral-level education programs in audiology or hearing science, as well as to serve as an in-depth reference source for practicing audiologists and other professionals, educators, scientists, and policy makers seeking current and definitive information on evidence-based pediatric audiology practice.

From the Foreword
It is exciting to see in one volume comprehensive coverage of contemporary trends in pediatric audiology. No doubt, the information contained within this new edition will be of value to those who seek to better understand the perplexities of childhood deafness and motivate others to search for newer and better ways to serve young children with deafness.
