Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sherri L. Smith, MA (University of Florida)
Description: The topics covered in this book are relevant to audiological rehabilitation (AR) for children and adults. These topics are uniquely arranged according to service provision, AR for children, AR for adults, technology, and future research.
Purpose: According to the editors, the purpose is to provide current AR information with regard to various settings, technology, computer applications, children's AR needs, and adults' AR needs. They do a fantastic job of compiling this needed information.
Audience: According to the editors, and in my opinion, this book is intended for use by audiology students, practicing audiologists, and other practitioners who provide hearing support in schools, long term care facilities, hospitals, and community agencies. The editors and contributors are leaders in the field of audiological rehabilitation.
Features: The content of this book includes a background of AR, recent changes in assessment of AR needs in children and adults, implementation of AR needs, outcome measures of AR, and future research. Subject areas that are of particular interest and that have been covered exceptionally well include outcome measures, counseling, and multi-disciplinary teams. The appendixes at the end of each chapter and the attachments at the end of the book are a great resource to the professional implementing AR in the work setting. A glossary at the end of each chapter or at the end of the book would also offer a wonderful resource; however, this book does not include one.
Assessment: This book is a current, in-depth overview of pertinent topics in audiological rehabilitation, making it the most up-to-date handbook for practitioners who work with individuals with hearing loss. Other books in the field are also exceptional, such as Tye-Murray's Foundations of Aural Rehabilitation: Children, Adults and Their Family Members (Singular Publishing Group, Inc., 1998), but do not include coverage of as many topics in such detail. This third edition was gravely needed since many new research findings have been obtained in the last decade in the area of audiological rehabilitation.

New edition of an enduring text first published in 1978. Audiologists from the full range of work settings contribute 19 chapters on philosophy and service provision, audiologic rehabilitation in children and in adults, technology, and future directions. A new chapter on outcome measures is included. The collection aims to balance theory with practical applications and serve as a general reference for those who have contact with the hearing impaired.
