Introduction to Audiologic Rehabilitation (5th Edition)
Now in its Fifth Edition, this text represents the most respected, current, and leading Aural Rehabilitation (AR) text in the field! This highly regarded text has been substantially updated and revised, making it more user-friendly for both students and instructors. It is especially current in areas dealing with hearing aids, cochlear implants, and current approaches to providing relevant AR. The text begins with eight chapters introducing the fundamentals–amplification, including cochlear implants, auditory and visual stimuli, speech and language, and educational and psychosocial issues. Two comprehensive methods and procedures chapters follow, focusing on children, adults, and elderly adults. Finally, the well-documented and amply illustrated text concludes with two case study chapters. The Fifth Edition includes substantial new content related to hearing aids, cochlear implants, and relevant forms of AR. Information on vestibular and tinnitus assessment and management has been greatly expanded. Additional case studies throughout the text help emphasize key points and allow students applicable practice of the concepts learned in a hands-on manner. Recommended websites and readings at the end of each chapter guide students to an abundance of relevant, supplemental AR material. Two complete case study chapters (adult and children) with added case examples.
