Summary Until recently, congenital hearing loss was a condition that generally curtailed a childs ability to develop the language of the ambient community and to succeed in mainstream educational settings. Two technological advances have radically changed that outlook for children with hearing loss: methods for screening hearing at birth and cochlear implants. This new book, based around a large-scale study, examines how closely the developmental trajectories of children with hearing loss matches those of children with normal hearing
