Adult Audiology Casebook is the ideal companion to Pediatric Audiology Casebook, by Jane Madell and Carol Flexer, published by Thieme in 2011.
This text provides information on assessing the whole child, what measures to consider, and how to communicate the findings. It is the distinct source for practical information on how to develop a test protocol, select appropriate tests, ensure a comprehensive assessment, and integrate the findings into an appropriate treatment plan.
As a unique resource that focuses on a relevant topic in today's accountability culture, this text will appeal to undergraduate and graduate students in deaf education and communication sciences and disorders; practicing professionals such as speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and psychologists; professionals studying for advanced certifications; as well as teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, professors of aural (re)habilitation, special educators, school administrators, and early intervention service coordinators.
Until now, for those working/studying in the domain of neonatal health, there has been no single, up-to-date, all-inclusive information source on newborn screening programs.
This title, by drawing on the knowledge of twenty clinical and research experts from varying fields, provides the only comprehensive text that details the entire collection of screening programs routinely delivered to newborns.
Beginning chapters outline preliminary information applicable to all screening systems, for instance, the history and principles of screening, ethical and economic debates, along with thorough description of the conditions routinely screened for. Following are highly detailed chapters dedicated to the specific neonatal screening programs currently in use, as well as complimenting chapters that provide future directions for each field. Additional discussion of topical issues, such as the incorporation of genetic counseling into screening programs, optimal communication with families, and the advent of integrated, non-discipline specific, national data systems, are contained in the final chapters.
This title assists the student in viewing their future neonatal clients as whole entities and in understanding the role of the other professionals with whom they shall closely interact. It allows the clinician to easily absorb the activities of screening programs on an international level, and the researcher to consider developments, outside of their immediate field, that may impact on their own research agenda. It allows the policymaker to make enlightened decisions concerning the development of newborn screening programs in their country. In fact, any reader with a rudimentary knowledge of pediatric health and an interest in newborn screening will find this title to be of invaluable worth.
Key Features:Includes practical, realistic case examples that illustrate the application of audiologic rehabilitation techniquesProvides various clinical models of audiologic rehabilitation used by well-known leaders in the fieldContains a collection of strategies that practitioners can use to guide parents in their child's spoken language developmentMay be used to prepare for certification exams in audiology and speech-language pathology that include a component on audiologic rehabilitation
This book is a practical resource that brings together current information on auditory and spoken language development from infancy to adolescence, and it will be a valuable addition to the library of practicing clinicians, students, and teachers in the field of audiologic rehabilitation.
