"...There is a clear need for better multidisciplinary team working around the needs of the family on a platform of shared knowledge. This book is aimed at students in the field of children s hearing and for families with deaf children. However the wealth of information contained within it has relevance for practicing audiologists, early intervention teachers and therapists, or anyone trained over a decade ago.
The content introduces and consolidates components of hearing science and technology with the neural potential of new learning for infants and young children, with enviable skill and insight. The technology for hearing is key, but the emphasis is on building opportunities for learning and hearing skills around meaningful communication within the family.
...This is a book that changes emphasis from the nuts and bolts of knowledge required by professionals to the holistic context of the child in his [or her] family...[It is] a reminder of the need for common understanding by the hearing support team and family...This book does it for me. This is my new course book for pediatric audiology." --Josephine Marriage, PhD, Chear Ltd, Royston Herts: Dept of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge, Cambridge Lecturer in Pediatric Audiology, UCL Ear Institute, ENT & Audiology, 2013
About the Author
Arthur Boothroyd, Ph.D., is Distinguished Professor Emeritus at the City University of New York; Scholar in Residence at San Diego State University; and Distinguished Visiting Scientist at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles. Born in England, he obtained a degree in physics from the University of Kingston on Hull in 1957. After a year in electronics research and four years as a high school physics teacher, he became interested in deafness as a result of having a deaf son. In 1962 he took a research fellowship in the Department of Audiology and Education of the Deaf at the University of Manchester, where, following two years of research on earmold design and acoustic feedback in hearing aids, he was hired as an Assistant Professor of Audiology. In 1969 he was awarded the Ph.D. degree for his research on speech perception and hearing aid fitting in hearing-impaired children. Soon after, he moved to the United States and for 13 years, served as Director of Research and Clinical Services at the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Massachusetts. While there, he and Dr. Janice Gatty collaborated on the creation of a preschool program for children with hearing loss. In 1981, he joined the faculty of the Doctoral Program in Speech and Hearing Sciences at the City University of New York, eventually attaining the rank of Distinguished Professor. He left that position in 2000 to move to California, where he remains active as a teacher, researcher, and consultant. Dr. Boothroyd has published extensively on the effects of childhood hearing loss on development, with special emphasis on speech perception, its assessment, and its enhancement with hearing aids, cochlear implants, and tactile aids.
Janice Gatty, Ed.M., M.E.D., Ed.D., has Masters degrees in Early Childhood Education and Education of the Deaf and a Doctorate in Human Development. She has been at the Clarke School for the Deaf in Northampton, Massachusetts, since 1974 and on the faculty at Smith College since 1977. Currently, she teaches undergraduate courses in child and adolescent growth and development and courses in early development of deaf and hard-of-hearing children and their families in the Graduate School of Education. She is Director of the Family Center at the Clarke School for the Deaf that houses an Audiological Clinic, an Early Intervention and Integrated Preschool Program, and a Comprehensive Educational Evaluation Program.
