Advanced Practice in Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation
OverviewWith ever changing technology and new methodologies in client care, this is a timely addition to the aural rehabilitation literature. Further, it is the only book to address the specific needs of the adult population, which is the growing market for audiologic services. The text covers definitions of audiologic rehabilitation, an overview of the area, psychosocial impact of hearing loss, assessment strategies, current technologies, treatment methodologies, research needs, and special issues in audiologic rehabilitation. It has been deliberately structured to move the reader from introduction, to specific details of the specialty of audiologic rehabilitation, to providing insights into characteristics of this patient population, and thence to a framework for assessment and treatment of the impact of hearing loss. With a completely international perspective, lacking in other works, it represents the only advanced text to meet the need for the high level of preparation required for doctoral level training, and presents clinicians with the latest practice techniques and technologies.
