Profound hearing loss in childhood has far-reaching consequences for children and their families. Recent interdisciplinary developments such as cochlear implants are transforming outcomes and offering many more opportunities for deaf children. 

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

The management of hearing loss in children
TLDR
The clinical assessment of hearing is discussed and an overview of the management options available in the treatment of hearing loss, including amplification, grommet insertion, bone anchored hearing aids and cochlear implantation are provided. Expand
Treating hearing loss in patients with infantile bartter syndrome
TLDR
The objective was to evaluate the treatment of hearing impairment in children with infantile BS and analyze relevant, unexplored issues. Expand
Assessment of Children With Hearing Loss and Co-Occurring Medical Disorders: Challenging Cases
TLDR
Assessing children with hearing loss and co-occurring medical disorders can be challenging and multidisciplinary decision making and decision making in this area is highlighted. Expand
Hearing loss and cochlear implantation in children.

TLDR
Over the past several decades, significant advances in implant technology, coupled with increased understanding of auditory development, have enabled many hearing impaired children to successfully become a part of the ‘‘hearing world’’. Expand
Asymmetric Hearing During Development: The Aural Preference Syndrome and Treatment Options
TLDR
The traditional minimalist approach to clinical management aimed at 1 functional ear should be modified on the basis of current evidence for asymmetric hearing loss, as evidence of an “aural preference syndrome” in early childhood reorganizes the developing auditory pathways toward the hearing ear, with weaker central representation of the deaf ear. Expand
Unilateral congenital hearing loss in children: Challenges and potentials
TLDR
This paper reviews the most recent evidence on the consequences of unilateral hearing impairment for auditory and neurocognitive factors, developmental factors, congenital deafness and a window of opportunity for intervention and discusses which etiologies qualify for a cochlear implant. Expand
Hearing loss: diagnosis and management.
Hearing loss may affect all age groups from the newborn to the elderly, impacting speech and language development in children and causing social and vocational problems for adults. Hearing loss canExpand
Effects of Early-Onset Deafness in the Developing Auditory System
TLDR
Attention is focused on maintaining better SG survival after deafness, an issue that is particularly important for pediatric CIs owing to the profound effects of early-onset hearing loss and expected long duration of CI use. Expand
Neurocognitive development in congenitally deaf children.
TLDR
This chapter briefly describes recent advances in early hearing loss identification and intervention, including the impact of cochlear implant technology, and discusses how these have substantially changed and continue to change developmental outcomes for children with hearing loss. Expand
Cognitive and outcome measures seem suboptimal in children with cochlear implants – a cross‐sectional study
TLDR
This study identifies various types of cognitive disorders among children with CI, comparing these children's cognitive abilities to the outcomes of CI in terms of hearing and speech performance. Expand

TLDR
The importance of communication-no matter the modality or degree of hearing loss-for the psychosocial well-being of hearing-impaired children is documents. Expand
Cochlear implantation in the very young child.
TLDR
The issues related to the implantation of young children and the need for special tools and protocols to use with this population are discussed. Expand
Language of Early- and Later-identified Children With Hearing Loss
TLDR
Significantly better language development was associated with early identification of hearing loss and early intervention and the variable on which the two groups differed must be considered a potential explanation for the language advantage documented in the earlier-identified group. Expand
Efficacy and Effectiveness of Cochlear Implants in Deaf Children
A large body of clinical research over the last decade demonstrates that cochlear implants work and provide significant speech and language benefits to profoundly deaf adults and prelingually deafExpand
Cortical reorganization in children with cochlear implants
TLDR
Reorganization of central auditory pathways is limited by the age at which implantation occurs, and may help explain the benefits and limitations of implantation in congenitally deaf children. Expand

TLDR
Within this range of age at implantation, it was found that implantation before the age of 2 resulted in speech perception and language advantages that were significant both from a statistical and a practical point of view. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
The use of cochlear implants in young children was associated with better spoken language learning than would be predicted from their preimplantation scores. Expand
