This landmark text emphasizes the perception of speech through residual hearing, either through the use of modern hearing aids or cochlear implants. An important feature of the book is the presentation of the aspects of speech that appear in the octave bands centered on frequencies depicted in audiograms. This knowledge, in conjunction with The Six-Sound Test, allows teachers and clinicians to determine whether the frequency response characteristics of hearing aids are adjusted to provide optimal levels of hearing. The text also provides an in-depth discussion of teaching and learning that concludes with the view that children are better able to learn than adults are to teach. The text presents the crucial bases of The Ling System of Speech Development and ends with an appendix specifying the common requirements of parents that can lead to the best results in dealing with their children. Each chapter concludes with suggestions for further reading.
