This book, Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, 2nd Edition (PDF), was designed expressly for speech-language pathologists who work with people who have hearing impairments. The knowledge and experience of speech-language pathologists, along with the specialized skills of audiologists, have been combined in this user-friendly textbook. In order to make it easier for speech-language pathologists to put the theoretical concepts and training they get from both fields into practice, audiological information that is essential to both fields is integrated into speech-language pathology.
In contrast to previous textbooks, Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist, Second Edition provides comprehensive information on all audiometric testing processes, as well as guidance on how to read and interpret audiometric data. The textbook covers programming planning from early intervention all the way through geriatrics, and it also provides a comprehensive examination of normal hearing development from birth up until the age of eight years old.
Each and every chapter of the second edition of Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist is broken down into the following components that are extremely beneficial: What You Ought to Know; Technically Speaking; Methodologies; How the Process Operates This method takes each idea and breaks it down into its component parts in a way that makes it easier for students to comprehend and remember the material. The second edition also comes with access to the Navigate 2 Advantage website, which features a variety of interactive resources, including videos and robust animations.
