<>This introduction to audiology text emphasizes the technical and scientific aspects of audiology, blended with other essential humanistic skills–active listening, empathy, client/family-centered protocols, and collaboration with family members and other professionals.

This book helps students develop the skills needed to address the needs of clients as human beings and as individuals who have communication disorders.

The authors specifically address the importance of audiology knowledge for the scope of practice in both speech-language pathology and audiology. This text is written to be a resource for the student of audiology and speech-language pathology long after the course is completed.

Written by two audiologists with more than 20 years of combined teaching experience, information in the text is presented in very clear, understandable language and is organized based on first-hand knowledge of formats that will be most useful to students. Because the authors also have nearly 40 years of combined clinical experience, the text is full of illustrative examples to further reinforce concepts introduced.
