This book presents a rationale and framework for auditory learning in childhood and describes a wide range of practical listening activities that adults can apply during everyday interaction with the child. The book serves as a guide to intervention and practice for teachers, parents, speech pathologists, audiologists and other health professionals.Themes include: Adult-child interaction; Listening tasks that challenge the child; Effective communication strategies; Adaptation to the child's skill level. This book shows adults how to become better communicators in order to help hearing-impaired children maximize their listening skills, and develop their spoken language and conversational competence. The therapeutic methods are founded upon evidence-based research, as well as practical experience obtained in pre-schools, classrooms, clinics, and parent-advisory centers. -- from Back Cover
