Hearing Impairment in Children represents the proceedings of the Third International Symposium on Childhood Deafness. The symposium, which was held in Nashville, Tenn, in July 1986, was designed to bring together recognized authorities in a wide variety of disciplines and to update our understanding of the issues related to childhood hearing impairment. While the book comes out nearly two years after the symposium was held, the time was well spent. The editing of the book is superb, and the long interval has not diminished the importance of the material.

The number and complexity of issues that either touch on or are touched by childhood hearing impairment are striking. There seems to be no area of human science or medicine that does not in some way play a role in the cause, diagnosis, or treatment of hearing impairment.

The book is divided into three sections: (1) "Issues on Etiology/Auditory Disorders," (2)
