 Hearing Across the Lifespan-Assessment and Disorders is the second book in a three-book series series focused on Translational Perspectives in Auditory Neuroscience.

The book reviews what is known about the developing auditory system, what happens as we age, as well as a brief synopsis of the disordered auditory system. These aspects of human perception are then extended by the discussion of state of the art noninvasive physiologic measures of hearing. Many of these measures are tools used to assay the auditory system in applied research studies, as well as used in the clinical evaluation of subjects.

The first book in the series is Normal Aspects of Hearing.

The third book is entitled Special Topics and provides "translational" perspectives on current topics in hearing science.

About the author

Kelly Tremblay, PhD, is Professor in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University at Washington. She earned a bachelor’s degree. in Psychology from the University of Western Ontario, Canada and a MSc in Audiology from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her interest in hearing science began in Colorado, as an audiologist who worked with hearing aid and cochlear implant users. Interested in auditory rehabilitation, she returned to school to learn more about the neuroscience underlying rehabilitation. She completed a PhD at Northwestern University, followed by post-doctoral training at the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, California.

As a clinician and neuroscientist, Kelly Tremblay uses her training in neuroscience to better understand some of the everyday listening difficulties people with hearing loss describe. Because the typical person with a hearing loss is usually older and has been deprived of sound for some time, Dr. Tremblay’s scholarly interests include defining the effects of aging and hearing loss on the brain. Another research interest of hers is to determine if auditory training can be used to improve the neural representation of acoustic cues transmitted by the ear to the cortex. She has published numerous papers and book chapters on these topics, and has received grant awards from many organizations including the National Institutes of Health. She has served as an Associate Editor for the American Journal of Audiology, an Assistant Editor for the Journal of the American Academy of Audiology, and a Section Editor for the journal Ear and Hearing.

Robert Burkard, PhD, CCC-A is Professor and Chair, Department of Rehabilitation Science, at the University at Buffalo. He earned his BS in Communication Disorders at Buffalo State College, and his MS and PhD in Audiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He did a post-doc in the Department of Biology at Washington University. His first faculty position (Assistant then Associate Professor) was in the Department of Communication Disorders at Boston University. He moved to the University at Buffalo, where he was an Associate then Full Professor, in the Departments of Communicative Disorders and Sciences, and Otolaryngology. He moved to the Department of Rehabilitation Science, in the School of Public Health and Health Professions, in 2006.

His scholarly interests include acoustics and calibration, auditory physiology, and (more recently) vestibular function and balance. His research in auditory physiology has focused on human and animal auditory evoked potentials, but includes some single-unit electrophysiology and functional imaging studies. He has served as Editor for the American Journal of Audiology, was the Audiology co-Chair of the 2007 American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Annual Convention in Boston, has served as vice Chair and Chair of the American National Standards (ANSI) S3 Bioacoustics Accredited Standards Committee, and currently serves as a member of the ASHA Health Care Economics Committee.

 How does Deaf culture fit into education, psychology, cultural studies, technology and the arts? Deaf Culture: Exploring Deaf Communities in the United States addresses this through both theoretical and practical information. With the recognition of American Sign Language (ASL) as a bona fide language, the perception of Deaf people has evolved into the recognition of a vibrant Deaf culture centered around the use of signed languages and the communities of Deaf people.

This text also describes how rapid advances in technology, including the Internet as well as new visual and auditory technologies, have not only created opportunities for Deaf people to influence how technology can be used, but additionally has become a powerful force in influencing the behavior of Deaf individuals within diverse national and international societies. This has created opportunities for incorporating diversity and international perspectives into Deaf culture. Within each chapter are multiple vignettes, examples, pictures, and stories to enhance content interest for readers and facilitate instructor teaching. Theories are introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner to ensure understanding, and clear examples are provided to illustrate concepts.

In addition, students of American Sign Language and Deaf studies will find an introduction to possible opportunities for professional and informal involvement with ASL/Deaf culture children and adults. Deaf Culture fills a unique niche as an introductory text that is accessible and straightforward for those beginning their studies of the Deaf-World.

Key Features:

* Strong focus on including different communities within Deaf culture
* Thought-provoking questions, illustrative vignettes, and examples
* Theories introduced and explained in a practical and reader-friendly manner
* Written by Deaf and hearing authors with extensive teaching experience and immersion in ASL and Deaf culture

How to Stop Stuttering The logical and traditional way to approach stuttering is to try to treat, stop, overcome or manage it. The only problem is, this way often does not work. This guide will present to you another view, one that I think you'll find far more effective and successful in helping you achieve your fluency and life goals. 

You know that you are capable of being, doing and having more. You know that you are intelligent and are able or want to be able to contribute more to your job, class, family, community and world. But, something has been holding you back. You've felt limited, even controlled by stuttering. Well, the great news is that you can learn to start speaking more smoothly, fluently and confidently, but only IF you approach it from a completely different direction. 

My name is Michael Williams and I'm the founder of The Start Speaking Training Center and the PRO90D Speech System, and I stuttered for over 20 years. In this guide, I'm going to share with you no only how I have used stuttering as a springboard to excellent speech, but, how I am helping thousands of people around the globe do the same. 

If you are truly ready to make a change, and have an open mind, I believe you WILL find something in this guide that will truly transform your entire life. And, I don't say that lightly. This guide contains the pure essence of all of the techniques and strategies I use everyday to help people just like you unlock their speaking potential. This is not hype, or theory. My approach to how to stop stuttering draws from the fields of Neuroscience, Neuroplasticity, Accelerated Learning Strategies, High Performance Training and real life experience. May this guide be a true blessing to you and everyone your life touches.
