The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, Second Edition is the most wide-ranging and complete work of its kind, and has become the definitive reference in the specialty area of pediatric audiology. Content areas range from typical auditory development, to identification and diagnostic processes, to medical and audiologic management of childhood hearing and ear disorders. An interdisciplinary assembly of sixty-six internationally recognized experts from the fields of audiology, speech-language pathology, education, pediatric medicine, otology, and hearing science have contributed to this second edition. Building from the success of the first edition, and aligning with the evolution of the profession, this edition expands and deepens its coverage of early identification of hearing loss, etiology and medical considerations, and hearing technologies, especially implantable devices and the measurement of outcomes resulting from intervention.
Updates to the new edition include:
- New chapters on the measurement of outcomes resulting from intervention, preventable hearing loss, implementation of newborn hearing screening programs, and the future of implantable devices, among others
- Reorganization for improved sequencing of content area
- Substantially updated chapters
The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, Second Edition is intended for use in doctoral-level education programs in audiology or hearing science, as well as to serve as an in-depth reference source for practicing audiologists and other professionals, educators, scientists, and policy makers seeking current and definitive information on evidence-based pediatric audiology practice.
From the Foreword
It is exciting to see in one volume comprehensive coverage of contemporary trends in pediatric audiology. No doubt, the information contained within this new edition will be of value to those who seek to better understand the perplexities of childhood deafness and motivate others to search for newer and better ways to serve young children with deafness.

"Named to Doody's Core Titles in the Health Sciences - Speech, Language & Hearing 2018 list."
Traci Flynn, Karolinska Institutet, International Journal of Audiology (June 2016):
"This book would be indispensable as the pediatric textbook in audiology programs or as an invaluable reference for a clinical audiologist or other professionals interested in the latest evidence. It is a wonderful reference for practicing clinicians and others who work with children with hearing impairment as it provides grounds for evidence-based practice."
Lawrence Hill, Audiological Scientist, The Medical Specialist Group Limited, UK, ENT and Audiology News (September/October 2017):
"The authors of Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, as stated themselves, have striven to pen an exhaustive and academic textbook on audiology. In my view, it certainly meets their aim of being at a masters or doctoral level. . . . this book does have and exceptionally good international perspective. For example, it goes into minute details on setting up a newborn hearing screening programme which, while less relevant to the typical NHS audiologist, may be essential to clinicians in another country where the NHSP is not established. The book provides some excellent new research, and, therefore, insight in to the routine clinical work we perform, such as with otitis media effusion and dealing with noise exposure concerns in teenagers, which has improved my practice and benefited my patients."
