Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Great for parents, people entering the field of audiology, teaching the deaf, or anyone unfamiliar with hearing loss. -- Roberta Agar-Jacobsen, Teacher of the Deaf 20060830 The way the many complexities of speech are discussed, explained, and addressed is very reader-friendly, easy to understand, and accessible. -- Sherilyn Renner, Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing 20060831 Real-world examples that reinforce teachings accompany analytical and framework viewpoints, making this a valuable library reference and text recommended for student teaching classrooms and college-level educator's libraries alike. -- The Bookwatch, September 2007 20071012 Designed to enlighten educators, parents, and professionals serving children with hearing loss. However, the novice is likely to gain immense insight from this text because of its readability and excellent descriptions of language acquisition in a range of situations. The techniques explained are supported by research, and the authors have done a good job of highlighting appropriate interventions to help students succeed. -- PsycCRITIQUES, January 2008, Vol. 53(4) 20080215
