This book provides a handy reference guide for medical practitioners who do not have specialist knowledge in paediatric audiology but who, nevertheless, will encounter many cases with mild hearing impairment in childhood, and occasional cases with more severe hearing problems. The test procedures used to assess the presence, type, nature and degree of hearing impairment are described with guidance on how to interpret the information provided in audiological reports. A book of this nature is long overdue and its presence is very timely given the appearance of various publications outlining requirements for improved quality and more effective service provision for hearing impaired children. The early detection of hearing problems is of fundamental importance in childhood and the medical practitioner has a central and active role in this process. Guidance on what practitioners can and should do is given in the text together with the answers to many questions which parents bring to the surgery.
