The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology will become the definitive reference in pediatric audiology, containing contributions from 50 internationally recognized experts in the field. The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology is intended for use in doctoral-level education programs in audiology or hearing science, as well as to serve as an in-depth reference source for practicing audiologists and other professionals, educators, scientists, and policy makers seeking current and definitive information on evidence-based pediatric audiology practice. Pediatric Audiology: Interview with Anne Marie Tharpe, PhD Douglas L. Beck, AuD, speaks with Dr. Tharpe regarding her role as co-editor of the new textbook, Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology (by Richard Seewald and Anne Marie Tharpe), as well as the epidemiology of childhood hearing loss, principles of early hearing detection and intervention, assessment and management of hearing loss family counseling, and much more.

Review quote

Sheila T.F. Moodie, MClSc., Faculty of Health Sciences, The National Centre for Audiology, The University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada., Journal of the Canadian Academy of Audiology, (March 2011): "This concise and comprehensive text book provides detailed information on the practice of pediatric audiology. The division of the book into eight sections results in easy navigation to particular topics of interest. The chapters are well-written and provide both basic science and research background, always linking the science to relevant clinical practice information. Each chapter has a significant number of pertinent and up-to-date references. Text, figures, tables, pictures and appendices are of good size and impeccable print quality. Many chapters provide checklists, protocols, and/or handouts that will be useful for pediatric audiologists in clinical practice. It will save many students from having to buy multiple text books and save audiology faculty members from having to search for relevant, up-to-date, well-written readings and lecture materials in the area of pediatric audiology. Audiologists in practice will find the text provides a wide range of clinically relevant information that will augment their knowledge and skills and improve the quality of services they are able to provide to children with hearing loss and their families. The chapters on epidemiology (Chpt. 5), frequency-specific ABR and ASSR assessment (Chpt. 20), cochlear implants for children (Chpts. 27 and 35), bone-anchored hearing aids (Chpt. 28), and auditory neuropathy spectrum disorder (Chpts. 13 and 37) fill many gaps that exist in current pediatric audiology text books. The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology is a valuable and necessary reference for the library of pediatric audiologists, students, and other professionals interested in EHDI programs, hearing loss in children and the impact on families. The inclusion of a diverse range of information in a single text book makes it a 'must-have' and sets the bar high for future text books in audiology. It will facilitate the training, and continued development of, highly qualified professionals in pediatric audiology. It is truly an exemplary reflection of what Dr. Gravel would want it to be: scholarly, scientific, clinically applicable and useful for teaching. Judy would be proud." Jace Wolfe, PhD, Director of Audiology at Hearts for Hearing, The Hearing Journal (Dec 2011): "Pediatrics got a best seller! The Comprehensive Handbook of Pediatric Audiology: Leave it to Richard Seewald, PhD, to step up yet again and give us an authoritative, comprehensive text for managing children with hearing loss. With the help of his co-editor, Anne Marie Tharpe, PhD, and inspired by the late Dr. Judy Gravel, this book is a must-have resource for any clinician who has children walking through his clinic door."
