Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist is specifically written for the speech-language pathologist working with hearing impaired populations. This helpful text incorporates the expertise of audiologists along with the knowledge and experience of speech-language pathologists and combines the theories and training of both disciplines in order to facilitate the practical application of foundational audiologic information into speech language pathology practice. This comprehensive text also covers the type and degree of hearing loss and the resulting auditory, speech, and language difficulties. The speech-language pathologist (SLP) may find him- or herself working in a wide range of settings, including medical, educational, rehabilitative, and industrial. Regardless of the setting, throughout their career they are quite likely to find themselves working with an individual who is hard of hearing or deaf. It is perhaps even more likely that the SLP will work with multiply impaired individuals with a wide variety of comorbidities, one of which may be hearing loss. Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist will help prepare SLP students and professionals with key knowledge for a wide-range of clinical encounters involving hard of hearing and deaf populations. Fundamentals of Audiology for the Speech-Language Pathologist is consistent with the current education philosophy of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Specifically, it addresses both knowledge and skills by integrating the science and technical aspects of audiology with current habilitative and rehabilitative strategies of the field. Pedagogical features include Chapter Objectives, Key Terms, Chapter Summaries, and Discussion Questions.
