Abstract
Addresses every facet of the ongoing controversy about implanting cochlear hearing devices in children. The authors analyzed the sensitive issues connected with the procedure by reviewing 439 responses to a survey of parents with children who have cochlear implants. This book begins with a history of implants development and an explanation of how implants convert sound into electric impulses that stimulate the brain. The second section focuses on pediatric implants, starting with the ways parents coped with the discovery that their child was deaf. The final part treats the controversy associated with cochlear implants, particularly the reaction of the deaf community and the ethics of implanting young children without their consent.
