Provides an overview of deafness and hearing impairment, including its causes, diagnostic and treatment options, and impact on balance. Looks at deafness as a separate culture versus deafness as a disability; and the controversy surrounding cochlear implants. Also offers personal stories from people living with hearing impairment.
"In general, these books are excellent sources for high school readers to enhance their critical thinking skills. They could easily be used as jumping off points for research projects and debate topics."
