Overview

FOUNDATIONS OF AURAL REHABILITATION: ADULTS, CHILDREN, AND THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS, 4th Edition introduces the fundamentals of rehabilitative audiology and hearing-related speech-language pathology in an easy-to-read style, along with concrete suggestions for delivering high-quality services. Designed for both classroom learners and as a reference for professionals, this widely-used book entwines theory with clinical practice, and presents research-based information for identifying, diagnosing, and treating hearing loss and hearing-related communication disorders. I Important topics include patient-centered services, auditory training for adults and for children, speechreading, counseling, selection and fitting of listening devices, conversational fluency and communication strategies training, and language and speech promotion. Divided into sections to cover adult and child populations separately, the book distills readings into important "Take Home" points illustrated by representative research reports, case studies and anecdotes, example procedures, and lively figures.

  • New chapters devoted to infants and toddlers with hearing loss provide a comprehensive overview of how to diagnose and treat the smallest patients and provide support services to their families.
  • Expanded coverage on patient-centered aural rehabilitation, listening devices and technology, communication strategies and styles, conversational fluency, auditory training for adults versus for children, speechreading, and counseling.
  • Improved organization by dividing chapters into two distinct sections of "adult and children" to help build a foundation around adult-related disorders, and then later understand the more specialized, child-related topics. New chapters on listening, speechreading, infants and toddlers, and speech, language, and literacy. , All chapters have been significantly revised, with new consideration of the daily rewards and responsibilities that come with audiology and speech-language pathology careers.
  • Clear presentation: Consistent organization, concise topics, and an easy-to-read writing style give readers the practical and theoretical side of every concept for a wide perspective of hearing-related communication issues and treatments.
  • Better Context: Real-life case studies and specific examples bolster the readings for a deeper understanding of the material and better classroom performance.
  • Supportive Findings: Exemplary research findings help readers understand not only the "what" and "how" of aural rehabilitation, but also the "why."
  • Targeted Goals: Emphasizing a "Take-Home" message for each topic helps readers focus on critical information while culling the distracting minutia.
  • Noteworthy Features: Attention-getting illustrations, interesting sidebar features, detailed appendices, and key resources noted throughout the book motivate readers to explore topics to their fullest.
