Since the first edition of this text, families across English-speaking nations have become more diverse and complex, more early intervention practitioners have begun embracing the imperative for family-centered early intervention, and increasingly more families and their young children with hearing loss have been requesting the services of auditory-verbal practitioners. This second edition, designed to be more reader-friendly, is a cross-cultural collaboration of expert family-centered practitioners that focus on how families and their infants and toddlers with hearing loss might best be served.  
Toward that end, the authors in this book examine the process toward certification in the field of auditory-verbal practice and the empirical bases as well as research outcomes pertaining to this global-wide practice. The development of a systemic and positive perspective, critical for practitioners who must evolve to serve more than just the parent-child dyad, is analyzed. Theoretical and practical bases of family-based models and parent-child interactions are explored. Issues related to diverse family structures and interactions are considered across chapters. The family decision-making process and family-centered strategies that can be effectively implemented by practitioners are discussed in detail. Implementing and evaluating routines-based interventions within natural environments as well as ways of engaging families with current technologies are included in this comprehensive resource. This book provides early intervention service providers with thought-provoking insights into the challenges and opportunities that affect 21st century auditory-verbal practice.

There is a growing realization that many adolescents with hearing loss require special attention. Despite the benefits of early diagnosis, early amplification, and early intervention, some adolescents with hearing loss do not achieve age-equivalent developmental milestones. The purpose of this book is to assist auditory (re)habilitation practitioners in mitigating the negative effects of hearing loss on communicative, socio-emotional, and academic performance of adolescents who rely on auditory-based spoken language to communicate. It is essential that adolescents whose parents chose auditory-based spoken language receive systematic, consistent, well-planned, appropriate auditory (re)habilitation. In Auditory (Re)Habilitation for Adolescents with Hearing Loss, Jill Duncan, Ellen A. Rhoades, and Elizabeth Fitzpatrick provide practitioners with key milestones considered fundamental to understanding adolescents with hearing loss as well as a pedagogical foundation and general intervention strategies for both planning and direct face-to-face (re)habilitation with adolescents. The authors summarize important issues related to the spoken language development of adolescents, focus on aspects of communication that are functionally relevant to adolescents with hearing loss, and provide strategies for facilitating auditory-based spoken communication skills. They conclude with a discussion of factors influencing auditory (re)habilitation, both in service delivery and outcomes, and provide the application of theory to practice through a demonstration of case studies.

Praise for this book:This unique book encompasses everything from hearing science and psychoacoustics to hearing conservation and basic audiometry...explaining it at beginner's level while providing a more in-depth look for the more experienced.--Doody's ReviewThe third edition of the successful Essentials of Audiology is a comprehensive introduction to the entire field of audiology. Retaining the user-friendly approach of previous editions, it incorporates current scientific and clinical knowledge to provide students with a solid foundation in the core audiological concepts. It covers the full range of topics from acoustics, anatomy, and physiology, to auditory disorders and hearing impairments, screening techniques, assessment, and clinical management. Highlights of the third edition:Coverage of the latest developments in hearing aid and cochlear implant technology and electrophysiological assessmentNew study questions at the end of each chapter that enable review of essential topicsExpanded discussion of management techniques, now in two separate chapters More than 300 illustrations to demonstrate important concepts Extensive bibliography with references to the current literatureThis introductory textbook is an indispensable reference for undergraduate and beginning graduate students in audiology and a resource for speech and language pathology students. With its thorough coverage of the essentials of clinical practice, the book also serves as a valuable refresher for beginning audiologists and speech-language pathologists.
