520    "A mother whose child has had a cochlear implant tells 
       Laura Mauldin why enrollment in the sign language program 
       at her daughter's school is plummeting: "The majority of 
       parents want their kids to talk." Some parents, however, 
       feel very differently, because "curing" deafness with 
       cochlear implants is uncertain, difficult, and freighted 
       with judgment about what is normal, acceptable, and right.
       Made to Hear sensitively and thoroughly considers the 
       structure and culture of the systems we have built to make
       deaf children hear. Based on accounts of and interviews 
       with families who adopt the cochlear implant for their 
       deaf children, this book describes the experiences of 
       mothers as they navigate the health care system, their 
       interactions with the professionals who work with them, 
       and the influence of neuroscience on the process. Though 
       Mauldin explains the politics surrounding the issue, her 
       focus is not on the controversy of whether to have a 
       cochlear implant but on the long-term, multiyear 
       undertaking of implantation. Her study provides a nuanced 
       view of a social context in which science, technology, and
       medicine are trusted to vanquish disability--and in which 
       mothers are expected to use these tools. Made to Hear 
       reveals that implantation has the central goal of 
       controlling the development of the deaf child's brain by 
       boosting synapses for spoken language and inhibiting those
       for sign language, placing the politics of neuroscience 
       front and center. Examining the consequences of cochlear 
       implant technology for professionals and parents of deaf 
       children, Made to Hear shows how certain neuroscientific 
       claims about neuroplasticity, deafness, and language are 
       deployed to encourage compliance with medical technology."
