Psychological Processes in Deaf Children with Complex Needs

An Evidence-Based Practical Guide

`This volume offers a broad perspective on psychological processes in children with complex needs. Armed with this valuable tool, professionals, parents, and educators will be much better prepared to offer deaf and hard of hearing children the support and opportunities they deserve.'

- from the Foreword by Marc Marschark

Psychological Processes in Deaf Children with Complex Needs is a concise and authoritative guide for professionals working with deaf children and their families.

The effects of hearing impairments on learning, social development and family life can be profound. They can impact on attachment, parenting and family interaction, and can affect cognitive and neuropsychological processes including perception and memory.

This guide draws on the latest evidence to explain the impact of hearing impairment and uses case studies to focus on the key issues for assessment and intervention. It also suggests practical strategies for treatment and development for those working with hearing impaired children.

Debate, Clarissa Prior-Jones, Specialist Senior Educational Psychologist, Northamptonshire

`This book will be particularly useful to individual psyhologists who find themselves working closely with schools for the deaf or local provision for children with hearing impairment, without much previous experience in theis area. Other educational psychologists may find it a useful addition to the service library as it provides information, some inspiration and also food for thought!`
