"Fundamental progress has been made since the first cochlear implant was developed and built in 1957. This volume is the only publication devoted entirely to the treatment and rehabilitation of prelingual and congenitally deaf children. In a multidisciplinary approach, physicians, audiologists, educationalists, speech therapists and engineers critically evaluate the possibilities and benefits of this electronic device. The individual chapters cover all aspects of the cochlear implant technique ranging from ethical considerations and patient selection criteria for surgery to choice and programming of the different devices. Special importance is given to the fact that successful rehabilitation does not only depend on the surgical and technical team but also requires interaction between the child, his family and the therapists during follow-up treatment."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
