  • “The book is a well researched and thorough presentation of foundational information for undergraduate and graduate students entering the field of deafness. The way the chapters are organized with introductory objectives and closing summaries in bulleted format is supportive of students dealing with large amounts of new information. The activities suggested are practical and provide ways to expereince and apply the theories and concepts reviewed in the chapter. The authorship combination of an audiologist and teacher of the deaf is unique to my kowledege and offers a great model for future collaborations in the field.”

    ~ Maria C. Hartman, MA, Teachers College, Columbia University 


    “The authors have created an interesting textbook devoted to speech and hearing science and technology. The text covers a variety of areas including anatomy, speech and hearing science, assisted listening devices, and speech, language and literacy issues. In addition to providing a detailed overview of those issues, the authors also present a discussion of team-based approaches for dealing with the educational and audiological complexities of students with hearing loss.  The relaxed format to the text may attract the eyes of college students. The authors have done a nice job of keeping the text conversational.”

    ~ Chad E. Smith, PhD, Director of Deaf Education, Texas Woman's University

     
    “This textbook provdes an excellent overview of materials typically presented in introductory audiology and aural rehabilitation classes.

    ~ Claudia D. Updike, PhD, CCC-A, F-AAA, Ball State University
     

  • "[Hearing and Deafness: An Introduction for Health and Education Professionals] is an excellent overview of anatomy/physiology, speech and hearing science, assisted listening devices, and speech, language, and literacy issues. The authors also discuss team-based approaches for addressing the educational and audiological complexities of students with hearing loss. The presentation is somewhat more relaxed than is typical in a textbook, which may prove attractive and interesting to college students. This excellent overview will serve as an excellent resource for students pursuing careers in deaf education, audiology, and speech pathology. It offers a thorough description of the audiological dimensions of hearing and how hearing loss affects speech, language, and literacy. I truly wish a book like this had been available when I was in graduate school."

    ~ Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A, George Washington University, Doody's Review Service

  • "An outstanding text for the collaboration of SLPs and Audiologists in both educational and healthcare settings."
    ~ Dr. Judy Montgomery, Chapman University
