Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist is specifically written for the speech-language pathologist working with hearing impaired populations. This helpful text incorporates the expertise of audiologists along with the knowledge and experience of speech-language pathologists and combines the theories and training of both disciplines in order to facilitate the practical application of foundational audiologic information into speech language pathology practice. This comprehensive text also covers the type and degree of hearing loss and the resulting auditory, speech, and language difficulties. The speech-language pathologist (SLP) may find him- or herself working in a wide range of settings, including medical, educational, rehabilitative, and industrial. Regardless of the setting, throughout their career they are quite likely to find themselves working with an individual who is hard of hearing or deaf. It is perhaps even more likely that the SLP will work with multiply impaired individuals with a wide variety of comorbidities, one of which may be hearing loss. Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist will help prepare SLP students and professionals with key knowledge for a wide-range of clinical encounters involving hard of hearing and deaf populations. Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist is consistent with the current education philosophy of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Specifically, it addresses both knowledge and skills by integrating the science and technical aspects of audiology with current habilitative and rehabilitative strategies of the field. Pedagogical features include Chapter Objectives, Key Terms, Chapter Summaries, and Discussion Questions. KEY TOPICS Behavioral and objective auditory screening and assessment, interpretation of results, and treatment considerations Concomitant acoustic, speech, language, and communication effects associated with different types and degrees of hearing impairment The hearing impaired child in the school setting, including description of laws for children with hearing impairment, parental rights, classroom modifications, and troubleshooting techniques for amplification and assistive listening devices A review of the evaluation of speech and language skills in the hearing impaired population and a list of appropriate tools for use by speech-language pathologists to assess these abilities Social emotional and counseling issues ANIMATIONS Sound Traveling Through the Ear Standard Testing Protocol and Procedures Normal Hearing Minimal Hearing Loss Otitis Media Moderate Sensorineural Hearing Loss "Cookie Bite" Audiogram Mixed Hearing Loss High Frequency Hearing Loss Profound Hearing Loss Soundfield Testing Pseudohypacusis Instructor Resources: Instructor s Manual, PowerPoint Presentations, Test Bank Student Resources: Navigate Companion Website"

This introduction to audiology text emphasizes the technical and scientific aspects of audiology, blended with other essential humanistic skills–active listening, empathy, client/family-centered protocols and collaboration with family members and other professionals. This book helps students develop the skills needed to address the needs of clients as human beings and as individuals who have communication disorders. The authors specifically address importance of audiology knowledge for the scope of practice in both speech-language pathology and audiology. This text is written to be a resource for the student of audiology, speech-language pathology and other allied health professions long after the course is completed. Written by two audiologists with more than 20 years of combined teaching experience, information in the text is presented in very clear, understandable language and is organized based on first-hand knowledge of formats that will be most useful to students. Because the authors also have nearly 40 years of combined clinical experience, the text is full of illustrative examples to further reinforce concepts introduced. New to this Edition: An extensive new section on balance disorders An expanded chapter on disorders of the ear. Updated information on digital hearing aids, cochlear implants, stacked ABR, auditory steady state response, and tinnitus. Increased coverage of the profession of Audiology.

Brain-Based Communication Disorders introduces the reader to the major clinically recognized types of acquired speech/language, cognitive, and swallowing disorders encountered by clinicians working with child and adult neurological cases. The text provides contemporary and state-of-the-art content on these disorders in terms of their neuropathological bases, clinical symptomatology, and prognosis. Basic anatomy and physiology of human communication and swallowing is introduced, as well as the neural mechanisms controlling speech, language, cognitive, and swallowing functions. In addition to the traditional acquired speech/language disorders of the nervous system (aphasia; neuromotor speech disorders) content including communication impairments caused by traumatic brain injury, multisystem blast injuries, and degenerative disorders of the nervous system is also provided. The reader is also introduced to the principles that govern the assessment and treatment for both pediatric and adult populations.

The third edition of Children With Hearing Loss: Developing Listening and Talking, Birth to Six provides updated information from the previous two editions for both professionals and parents facilitating spoken language through listening (auditory brain access, stimulation, and development) in infants and young children with hearing loss. Also addressed is auditory brain development, audiologic technologies, auditory skill development, spoken language development, as well as family-focused intervention for young children with hearing loss whose parents have chosen to have them learn to listen and talk. Additionally, this new edition is expanded to reflect important and rapidly evolving changes that have developed in the past five years, including: Application of neuroscience research to our knowledge of the foundations of listening and talking (Chapter 1)Current information on vestibular function in infants and young children (Chapters 2 and 3)Essential technology updates (Chapter 5)Expansion of the discussion of types of services a child with age-appropriate skills needs to sustain a positive academic trajectory (Chapter 6)Discussion of the use and efficacy of coaching and other parent guidance strategies (Chapter 10)Updated resources (Appendix 6) This text is intended for undergraduate- and graduate-level training programs for professionals who work with children who have hearing loss and their families. This third edition is also a valuable resource for parents, listening and spoken language specialists (LSLS), speech-language pathologists, audiologists, early childhood instructors, and teachers. Furthermore, much of the information in Chapters 1 through 5 and Chapter 7 is beneficial to individuals of all ages with hearing loss, especially newly-diagnosed adults.
