Human beings are endowed with senses which are crucial for the development of cognitive processes, and the information received through them creates the reality and the image of the world. Sensory information provides people with aesthetic, emotional and intellectual experiences. The dysfunction of one of the senses or its complete absence results in receiving untrue (incomplete) information about the surrounding environment, which in turn may cause an imbalance in cognitive and psychological processes as well as changes in psychomotor behaviors leading to minimizing life opportunities and the very quality of life. The most seriously affected by deafness are children, and in particular children with congenital or early childhood damages of the hearing organ. In such cases it is not considered a disease anymore, but a pemanent disability, a burden, which is also associated with sensory-motor problems.

Taking into account the isolation of the Deaf as well as the fact that the problem of deafness concerns people of different ages and the scale of hearing damage is often progressive, deafness is now considered a lifestyle disease. Sękowska (1998) emphasized the fundamental importance of verbal communication for the proper mental, psychological and emotional development as well as for human social adjustment. Therefore, deafness is not only a medical problem, but also a social problem that exposes the escalation of human isolation, pointing to men’s individual problems.

On behalf of the Editors and myself, I would like to encourage you to read the present interdisciplinary book on the child with hearing loss development, first of its kind in Poland. The publication includes articles on holistic approach to therapy while supporting the patient’s development. The result of co-editorial and co-authored work of numerous academics and researchers is a monograph whose contents comprised in the following chapters are supported by knowledge and empirical practice of experts with high scientific and research competences in the fields of medicine, health sciences, physical education, pedagogy, psychology, speech therapy, philosophy, and logistics. The reader will gain knowledge about the skills and therapeutic experience widely utilized in the USA, Canada, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland and Dubai presented in comparison to Polish practice.

The International Academic and Methodological Congress "The Child with Hearing Impairment - Theoretical and Practical Implications”, was part of the social campaign “From Ear to Ear” (“Od ucha do ucha”), which has been organized by the In Corpore Foundation and its Partners since 2016. The Congress took place in Katowice, on September 28-29, 2017. It was organized in substantive cooperation of The Jerzy Kukuczka Academy of Physical Education in Katowice and the In Corpore Foundation, with the support of the Silesian Voivodeship Marshal's Office and the Katowice City Hall, and it gave an impulse for the exchange of ideas and creation of this publication The Editors assumed that this work should have not only an interdisciplinary, academic and didactic character, constituting a compendium of knowledge about the developmental needs of a child with hearing loss, but also substantial research quality. The monograph is addressed to everyone who is not indifferent to understanding the developmental needs of a child with hearing impairment, to parents, teachers and students of medical, paramedical and pedagogical departments.

The book consists of three complementary parts. In the first of these, the reader will find information from the field of medical sciences, an expert perspective, supported by empirical practice in otolaryngology, surgery, cardiology and health sciences. The second part consists of historical and philosophical considerations and therapeutic indications as well as logistic solutions and information on sociological systems supporting the rehabilitation and revalidation processes of children and adults with hearing dysfunctions. The chapters in the third part are the result of broad research in the fields of pedagogy, physical culture, kinesiology, physiology, speech therapy and physiotherapy, taking into account the evolutionary approach to disability issues. The content is devoted to the diagnosis and evaluation of developmental processes, both morphofunctional and educational.

Furthermore, eleven out of twenty chapters of the monograph are in English. The remaining nine are written in Polish and include abstracts in English. The Editors believe that the above can broaden the circle of recipients to foreign students and lecturers who attend or work at Polish medical and pedagogical universities.
