When her toddler son, Alex, was identified with significant hearing loss, Lydia Denworth worried about how well his brain and language skills would develop outside the world of sound. An acclaimed science journalist as well as a mother, Denworth began interviewing experts on language development, inventors of groundbreaking technology, leaders in the Deaf community, and neuroscientists at the frontiers of brain plasticity research.
One mother’s engrossing journey to the frontiers of science, I Can Hear You Whisper will be embraced by parents of children who want to better understand the exquisite relationship between sound, language, and learning.
