About this book
Human Auditory Development deals with what is currently known about the development of hearing and the auditory system in humans. This volume provides an important contemporary reference on hearing development and leads to new ways of thinking about hearing in children and about remediation for children with hearing loss. Much of the material in this volume documents that a different model of hearing is needed to understand hearing during development.
