4 Stars! Doody's Review Service
"I would highly recommend this book for any instructor who teaches audiological topics to graduate-level SLP students. It is also an appropriate reference for practitioners who would like an updated source of information about amplification devices and auditory (re)habilitation, or is looking for supplemental information about interpreting a variety of audiometric tests. The second edition is warranted, as the authors have added several new chapters and provided necessary updated material that reflects fast-paced changes in audiological equipment and technology."
 

Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, animations, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.
 

Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition is specifically written to provide the speech language pathologist with a knowledge base to work with individuals who are hard of hearing, deaf and diagnosed with (central) auditory processing disorder. Serving as a guide to the management of hearing loss, this unique resource presents basic audiological concepts in a clear, concise, easy to understand format, eliminating extensive technical jargon. This comprehensive text covers various types and degrees of hearing loss and the resulting auditory, speech, and language difficulties. Moving away from an exclusively diagnostic format of audiology practices, this text also focuses on the rehabilitative aspects of hearing loss.

Unlike other texts, Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition presents detailed information on all audiometric testing procedures and how to read and interpret audiometric results. The text covers programmatic planning from early intervention through geriatrics while also providing a thorough review of normal hearing development from birth through eight years of age.

Each chapter of Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition is organized into these helpful sections: What You Need to Know, How it Works, Technically Speaking, Methodologies. This approach breaks down each concept in a way that facilitates student comprehension and retention. The Second Edition also includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access, featuring interactive resources such as robust animations, and videos.
