Clinical Management of Children with Cochlear Implants Plural Publishing has released the second edition of Clinical Management of Children with Cochlear Implants, a comprehensive volume written by leading researchers, clinicians, and educators in the field. The book offers a guide for practitioners, instructors, and students, and builds on over 35 years of collective experience in pediatric cochlear implantation and addresses contemporary practices.

The authors share their expertise in such disciplines as otolaryngology, pediatrics, audiology, speech-language pathology, habilitation, education, electrophysiology, psychology, and clinical research. The publisher explains that, although many of the chapters from the first edition remain relevant today, the field continues to evolve with advancements in technology, expanding indications, and patient demographics. The second edition reflects these changes with new topics and expanded updates, presenting up-to-date research findings with implications for clinical management of the pediatric implant population.

According to Plural Publishing, the second edition includes new chapters on neurocognitive assessment, dual language learning, early literacy, family-centered habilitation, and development of evidence-based programs. It also includes expanded chapters on device programming, education, and auditory brainstem implants, and updates in research and clinical practices in assessment and management.

The book has multiple contributing authors, and is edited by Laurie S. Eisenberg, PhD, an audiologist and professor of research otolaryngology in the Tina and Rick Caruso Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC).
