The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology, Second Edition is intended for use in doctoral-level education programs in audiology or hearing science, as well as to serve as an in-depth reference source for practicing audiologists and other professionals, educators, scientists, and policy makers seeking current and definitive information on evidence-based pediatric audiology practice.
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.
