Plural Publishing; 3rd Edition
The Third Edition of the Book “Auditory Processing Disorders: Assessment, Management, and Treatment” (PDF) describes the history, behaviors, definition, and comorbidities of auditory processing disorders while educating the reader on the most recent procedures for audiological and speech-language assessment of APD; including its impact on literacy and the processing of language. In-depth coverage is provided on all aspects of practical rehabilitation, direct treatment programs, and management tactics, including the application of technology.
This third edition presents the tireless ongoing study, research, and clinical application by the best minds in the field of APD, whose work is transforming the way clinicians are affecting the lives of thousands of individuals who struggle with APD. In addition, this edition also includes new material that has been added since the previous edition was published. This new version is the result of a more in-depth examination of the field, and it features new contributors, findings from experiments, and discoveries that make the scientific field more conclusive.
A global perspective of auditory processing, including the most recent in evidence-based treatment regimens, is included in the third edition of this book. These additions are as follows:
- New features, including references and resources, as well as web links.
- photos that have been updated of the newest FM systems and treatment apps.
- For improved readability and comprehension, the content has been modified to be clearer, less wordy, and easier on the eyes of the reader.
- A comprehensively revised and updated chapter authored by Nina Kraus and her fellow researchers in the Brain Volts laboratory at Northwestern University.
- The revised chapters incorporate the most recent findings from research on AN/AD as well as the most recent tests that are useful for the SLP to use in the screening process for APD.
- A new chapter on psychological testing, focusing on what psychologists bring to the table in terms of diagnosis and the overall testing battery for APD.
- A new chapter by Carol Lai in Vancouver on an evidence-based program known as CAPDOTS, with statistics to support its application in deficit-specific rehabilitation.
- The reviewers’ comments were used to create a reduced version of the ebook, which makes it more suitable for reading and classwork during a semester-long course of study in the subject area.
- New chapters contributed by well-known authors from all around the world, including names like Harvey Dillon, Sharron Cameron (Australia), Doris Bamiou (South America), and Vivian Illiadou (Greece).
- Novel chapters have been added that discuss neurological brain injury and its effect on auditory processing, psychiatric diseases that are connected with auditory processing, the effect of otitis media on auditory processing skills, and new methods for detecting auditory processing disorders (spatialized noise test).
It has been updated to include a companion website called PluralPlus, which has more content for continuing to provide full coverage of APD. The third edition of Auditory Processing Disorders is a very practical book developed specifically for practicing clinicians and instructors. This includes speech-language pathologists as well as audiologists. Students in higher-level audiology courses will find this book to be an invaluable resource due to the extensive review of APD that it contains.
